Hi

can anyone assist with this - with regards to waste produced at festivals/large events etc Is there an average tonnage of waste produced per 1000 peeps figure anywhere? This is intended to be based on an event without any resource recovery system in place. I want to be able to say for example 30,000 people produce an estimated XXX tonnes of waste and at events like XXXX with no resource recovery in place that we can estimate that XXXX is going to landfill.

Thanks
Lindsey
