Each summer we bring the best party to the majestic Indian Lookout County Club in the rolling hills of upstate New York. This year we're making a commitment, along with our attendees, to keep our festival grounds beautiful through recycling and waste reduction programs.
No secret here, the attendees will make the program a success. Please pay attention where recycling, compost and waste are placed.
Please be sure to pick up all trash at or around your campsite and bag it up at the end of the weekend. Please respect our temporary home!!
We are excited to have Clean Vibes, the trash and recycling experts, return to Camp Bisco this year to help us make Camp Bisco XI the cleanest and greenest one yet.
Clean Vibes needs your help! We all need to work together to keep the campground and the concert areas clean throughout the weekend. Please keep your camping area clean: Recycle and pick up your trash.
Let's all help to minimize the waste footprint of Camp Bisco by diverting all recyclables from the landfill. Every vehicle received two bags - the clear one is for trash and the blue one is for recycling. Any aluminum, #1 and #2 plastic beverage containers and cardboard can be recycled in the blue bag. We will have extra bags at the info booth.
After the show ends each night, be sure to grab a bag and lend a hand to cleanup the concert field. If we all work together we can be sure that the field is clean and ready for another day of dancing!
This year we are thrilled to be bringing the Clean Vibes Trading Post to Camp Bisco. The Clean Vibes Trading Post is a non-profit project that wants to reward YOU for your green behavior. Help recycle and clean up as much as possible at Camp Bisco by turning in cans and bottles —then "trade" those cans and bottles for cool prizes! The cans and bottles become a currency of sort, and the more recycling you collect, the more valuable items you can "purchase."
Bring your cans and bottles to the Clean Vibes Trading Post and "cash them in." You can also collect a small bag of cigarette butts or glow sticks and turn these in for points.
Depending on the number of cans and bottles (or butts and glow sticks) you turn in, you will receive a certain number of points. Cash in points for your choice of a variety of awesome prizes– from earth friendly health and beauty products, sunscreen, and organic clothing to autographed band merchandise and food vendor vouchers. Cash them in for small stuff or keep collecting points throughout the weekend to "purchase" something big! The person who trades in the most recycling throughout the weekend will receive 2 tickets to next year's event! (***or a different festival?****) RECYCLE & WIN!
When the music stops at the end of the weekend, be sure to take some time to clean up your campsite. Bag up all of your recycling and trash in separate bags. Do a quick sweep of the ground to pick up any cigarette butts and bottle caps from the grass. Finally, tie off your full bags of waste and bring them to the edge of any road in the campground for curbside pickup.
Please help Clean Vibes cultivate cleanliness and ensure that we as a community reduce the size of the ecological footprint we leave behind at the ILCC. Let's take the phrase "leave only footprints" one step further to make sure the footprints we leave are as small as possible.
Clean Vibes is still looking for volunteers to help with the recycling and clean up effort. Positions are available for during show and post show cleanup. All volunteers receive free admission to the event (a refundable deposit is required) For more info and to sign up, click here or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Service animals, which have been trained to provide assistance to an individual with a disability, are allowed. The owner of the service animal will be asked to fill out a notice of responsibility form upon entry to the festival.
Pets are NOT allowed and pet owners will be required to take the animal to a kennel.
Most importantly, have fun, be nice to others, have a little patience, drink plenty water, and give the gift of laughter to the people around you during Camp Bisco. Watch out for your neighbors, make friends, and have an awesome time!!
