Managing Your Camping Waste at LIB
So far you have done an amazing job being an eco friendly camper by riding the super green Lightning Bus! Kudos to you!
Here’s some important info to help you keep your stuff compact, manage your waste, and be environmentally friendly while doing it:
- Depackage all your food and products before you come – saves space, reduces waste!
- Bring 3 different bags to sort your Recycling, Landfill, and Compost waste in your camp. A bucket with a lid for compost would be best. This is important because:
- As a bus rider you have special privileges to leave your waste at LIB rather than taking it home on the bus. **With your bus confirmation in hand** you will be allowed entrance to the dumpster area to dump your waste. It MUST be sorted properly in order to go in the dumpsters!! Sorting guidelines are below, and will be readily available for you at the event in your festival booklet.
- Remember to bring your own water container, utensils, plates, etc. Free filtered water will be available, no need to pack plastic bottled water as long as you have a container. You can also be super eco and use your own reusable plates and cups in the food vending area as well as your camp.
- Food waste – meat is okay
- Soiled paper or cardboard, e.g. napkins, paper plates
- Vendor provided cutlery (cups, plates, all utensils – including coffee and beer cups)
- Untreated wood such as wood utensils, chopsticks, and coconut shells
- Waxed paper: milk cartons, tea bags that do not have plastic/foil
- CLEAN WITH NO FOOD RESIDUE
- cans (aluminum & tin)
- paper or cardboard that is not soiled
- plastics that are unsoiled, bags are okay; cups & utensils
- clean styrofoam
- Plastic-lined or foil-lined paper: some juice/nut milk cartons, w/ plastic lids
- Gross or uncleanable plastic: e.g. drippy bags or half-filled peanut butter jars
- Foil wrappers: chip bags, power bars, etc.
- NOT ACCEPTED: Do not put in bins/dumpsters
- hazardous materials: batteries, fluorescent bulbs, paint, non-eco cleaners, oil, propane, broken glass
- bulky items, electronics, furniture

Welcome to LIB’s new home! We are so excited to invite you all to a bigger, more beautiful location surrounded by a big blue lake, majestic Southern California mountains, and more lush green grass than ever before! Lake Skinner is a hidden gem of Southern California and we feel very lucky to have found it. Besides the beautiful views, the new location is more compact, so even though there is more open space, it’s all closer together and easier to navigate. It also features full RV hook-ups and a significantly more comfortable camping experience.
