Savour Kilkenny has introduced new green initiatives to minimise the environmental impact of the festival with waste minimisation and also raising environmental awareness for stall holders and visitors. This includes food waste bins, (for cooked / raw food) in addition general waste bins, compostable packaging, cardboard and newspaper. Reusable shopping bags are also available. This green initiative will divert food waste from landfill and instead the waste will be composted and converted into a usable product. Kilkenny CoCo and Savour encourage festival goers to separate their waste into compostable and general waste. visitors can refill their water bottles at provided water points reducing the need for plastic bottled water. Visitors are encouraged to walk, cycle, car pool to get to events which are mostly centered on the City area within easy access.
The last Kilkenny City electrical collection for 2013 will take place on the 28th of Sept 2013 in Cillin Hill. Recycle your household electrical waste (WEEE) for free. Remember if you miss this date – you can bring your household electrical waste to Dunmore Recycling Centre free of charge all year around!
