Westport Festival of Music & Food goes green in 2013

If you are travelling to Westport at the end of June for the Westport Festival of Music & Food we want to let you know that the Environment Department of Mayo County Council is busy preparing to ‘Green’ this year’s event.


A new waste segregation bin system will be available this year with facilities for festival goers to separate food waste and recyclable items from normal landfill waste.


There will be plenty of ‘Greening your Festival’ volunteers to help you help us green the festival!


Younger festival goers will also be able to join in the Greening Fun. Mayo County Council has organised a special children’s workshop at the festival where you can make puppets using waste materials!


Go Mayo, go Westport!
