The Thames Festival Trust engages a professional waste management contractor whose existing code of practice is for as much waste as is practicable to be recycled. Final figures on the total tonnage of waste is currently being evaluated, statistics received from the professional waste management contractors indicate in the region of 70% recycling achieved with 30% going to landfill.
