  • Summary

    There will be trash containers for sorted trash and refundable (pant) from all of Borderland. This year Borderland will make 150 m3 of trash. The containers will help us make trash into a resource and organizing trash is our gift to the quarry.

    Full description of the concept

    We will have containers each 8-12 meters long outside the gate. Here borderlings can place their trash sorted in transparent plastic bags. There will also be white boxed for refundable drink cans and plastic bottles around the quarry. We expect 150 m3 of trash and our gift to the quarry is to have trash sorted so borderlings so they don't have to take it home.
    The municipality takes sorted trash for free, so we educate borderlings before the event and with a trash party with trash games to minimize non-sorted general waste that we pay the municipality to take. The bottle/can refund money pays some of the container rent.

    We will work with the MOOPicons informing borderlings about trash sorting.

    We will wear trash uniforms when manning the trash container opening hours.

    About the group/Artist

    Trash to Treasure is a project that successfully handled 100 m3 of trash at Borderland in 2017. This year we will do it again but better, expecting 150 m3 of trash. The core team is Peter Mulvany as lead with Ida Maria Aunsbjerg Villadsen, Mona Jensen and Gunilla Östblom. 10-20 borderlings will work shifts at the container guiding other borderlings with trash.

    How can other burners co-create with you?

    There will be a trash party to open the project and daily opening hours that must be manned by co-creators to guide trash sorting.

    Costumes are uniforms that show other borderlings that we are trash workers. It motivates borderlings to take a shift at the trash container.
