Looks like poor planning by the event coordinators, but I don't see one garbage can on the grounds.
Reading is the garbage can.
Anybody want a free tent?
don't the people who attend these things annoyingly care about the environment?
Reading is for hippies.
Prob a couple of garbage lorries... perhaps more then...

It always amazes me at the shit people leave behind. Those tents arnt cheep, not to mention all the other shit
Friend of mine worked a big festival in Ireland a few years ago. He said that people would even just leave their stuff in their tents and the had basically a dump truck with a claw on it to just pick up the tents and drop them in the back.
They do, it's just that they also happen to be "more equal."
A lot of big festivals plan for this shit to happen in advance. It's probably easier to do this than to have tons of garbage cans on the grounds and have daily or twice daily garbage pickup.
