Glastonbury 'paint' festival

02/07/2007 Return to news archive

If you were at Glastonbury festival this year you may have come across one of the delightfully painted recycling bins. Old oil drums were reused to collect recycling and rubbish from festival goers and had been painted using paint donated from Community RePaint East London based in Walthamstow.

1,500 litres of paint were transported over to Pilton a couple of weeks before the festival started so that the dedicated team of bin painters could make sure they were ready for when the festival opened its doors. The paint was also used for flag poles and information signs.
