Re: [GreenYes] Festival Recycling
How about if you require the vendors to:

- sell products only in containers that can be reused or recycled;
- charge DEPOSITS on containers taken away;
- issue DEPOSIT REFUNDS on containers returned to the recycling stations 
(there will need to be several of them);

This will:
- provide an incentive for festival goers to recycle
- potentially raise $$ for the festival in unclaimed deposits (if 350,000 
people attend the festival, each one using a single container, each 
container being charged a quarter, and 10% of the containers are not 
returned - you do the numbers: the festival could do quite nicely!
