An opportunity to learn the ins and outs of keeping a clean and recyclable society is on offer for local community groups at the upcoming Sounds of Rock event.
The festival is now taking expressions of interest for those interested in training with the Discovery Coast Environment Group (DCEG) Bin Chickens.
The group is dedicated to educating the community about plastic pollution, turtle monitoring and more and members are often on hand at major events to help with the clean-up process.
Lighthouse Hotel Venue Manager Gavin Hales said the team was looking for groups from the community interested in upskilling and trying something new.
“We are looking for a couple of different groups to both assist the Bin Chickens and learn from their marvelous work, while continuing their passion about spreading the initiative of a clean and recyclable society,” he said.
“Once these other community groups have been trained, I guarantee there will be other event managers seeking their help.”
The training involves the set up of waste and recycle bins, signage around the venue, removing waste and recycling from the festival grounds and sorting waste and recycling back of house.
There is also hourly cleaning checks and schedules to adhere to.
To enquire about the opportunity, contact Lighthouse Hotel Venue Manager Gavin Hales at firstname.lastname@example.org.
