The non discriminatory recycling machine. For people who have experienced a festival, this is a familiar image: on the last day everyone leaves the festival site quite shaky. But they don't leave the field empty. Tents, sleeping bags and other waste is left behind. As a festival organization you often do not have the manpower, money and technology to recycle this waste properly. Fortunately, there is UPPACT. Their innovation, the UnWastor, recycles all plastic (and textile) waste. Unsorted and unwashed, this is converted into high-quality, new and recyclable products, such as building materials. This way the festival will also be able to reuse these products in the following edition!
