Join the Festival’s award-winning Zero Waste Team

Lots of keen volunteers  are needed to help out on the waste stations on Fairday, Sunday March 6th. This is a fun and important role – full training and costumes are provided!!

Newtown Festival is just around the corner and we are amped to roll out another epic waste minimisation effort! Last year we managed to divert 50% of our waste, this year we’re hoping to get that to 80%. But we can’t do it without your help…

Volunteers are needed at the 13 zero waste stations to help the public place their waste in the correct bin. We also need set-up and pack-down helpers. It’s super fun, people enjoy getting help with their rubbish and you get to hang out and observe this awesome Festival pass you by.

If you can help us achieve this goal, please add your name and details in this google spreadsheet:

There will be an info/training session on Thursday 3rd March 5.45-7pm at the Newtown Community & Cultural Centre, cnr Colombo & Rintoul Sts.

Please invite your friends and/or share this event! It’s a big task and we need all the willing helpers we can get!

Timebankers can earn time credits for their time!
