As the dust settled on another year of live music and entertainment, festival goers made way for the big annual clear-up to begin at Latitude.
Vital work to restore the Henham Park to its familiar pastoral condition began first thing this morning, with site staff busily dismantling stages and collecting unwanted property to be recycled or disposed of.
Discarded items included shoes and clothing, lilos, tents, bottles, bats and balls, artificial flowers and cool boxes.
Latitude organiser Festival Republic employs its own sustainability co-ordinator to encourage festival goers to limit the carbon footprint they leave behind by actively recycling and using more environmentally friendly forms of transport to reach the site.
All food sold during the weekend comes in biodegradable packaging and bins are separated into recycling for plastic bottles and aluminium cans, compost for food scraps, plates, bowls, cups, pizza trays, cutlery and paper napkins, and other waste for landfill.
