Waste Diversion


We created close to 450K pounds of waste last year, but we diverted 86% of that waste through composting, recycling and reusing. Each year we work alongside Clean Vibes and the San Francisco Department of the Environment to achieve the highest possible diversion rates. All of the single-use cups, plates, bowls, and utensils are 100% compostable at Outside Lands thanks to our sustainability partner Eco-Products. Please make sure to put them in the proper green bin marked “compost.” You can also look for our Clean Vibes Trash Talkers® who will help point you in the right direction.
