Providing post-event cleaning to the streets of the Notting Carnival
Europe’s biggest street carnival will be taking place from the 27-28 August 2017, the Notting Hill Carnival. It is a date that millions of people will have in their diary for all kinds of purposes. From partying hard, parading through the streets of Notting Hill, Ladbroke Grove and Westbourne Park, to enjoying time with family and friends, the huge event results in tonnes of waste being left behind, spanning the nearly 6 km long route.
Cleaning up after the carnival
To ensure that around 200 tonnes of waste is cleared before the following morning, a team of roughly 170 operatives and 60 vehicles (made up of refuse trucks and mechanical sweepers) will be put into action over night. As always, the materials that can’t be recycled are all converted into green energy. Last year’s waste produced enough energy to power 60,000 hot showers and this year could see even more. In fact, all of the electricity and heat produced could save around 54 tonnes of CO2 emissions. [Note: If you ever wondered how much CO2 your waste is already creating, take a look at our carbon calculator.]
However, the Notting Hill Carnival clean-up is always exciting due to the sheer scale of the event in the confines of such a small area.
The waste from the celebrations will inevitably spill onto surrounding gardens and, with this in mind, households along the carnival route are offered a free, post event, cleaning service to remove any rubbish that has been left in their gardens or outside their basement. If you are planning on joining in the celebrations, please make use of the designated recycling points along the route, and don’t forget the gum board. By sticking your gum to the designated boards you will save thousands of pounds in street deep cleaning and contribute further to the mass recycling carried out after the Notting Hill Carnival clean up.
