|CLEAN UP PLANS
This page includes some things we all
must do collectively as a camp and as a family to keep our
area clean and free of MOOP (Matter Out Of Place. This isn't
just a set of rules. It's an attempt to align our vision and
live up to our responsibilities as citizens of Black Rock
City. The Burning Man community expects us to live up to
Things we all must do
Minimize packaging before we go to Burning Man. That
packaging has to go somewhere and no one wants trash blowing
out to the perimeter fence.
Do NOT dump gray water on the playa or in the porta-potties
(gray water = shower water, dish water)
Do NOT spit toothpaste on the playa
DO NOT bring any of the following:
pistachios or any other nuts in shells
feather boas or other clothing with bits that can come off
in the wind
loose glitter or glitter glued to artwork unless it is
sealed with a clear coat (e.g. clear krylon spray paint).
confetti or anything like it! Bad! No!!
clothing or artwork with bits that always fly off in the
individually wrapped candies (generates lots of tiny trash)
We must collect all our trash and take it away from
Burning Man. Each person must clean up their personal camp
space, including all debris, rebar stakes in the ground. Our
camp has tools to get the job done.
We must pick up MOOP (matter-out-of-place) wherever we see
it. Take a small trashbag sometimes when we go adventuring.
Tim Cramer will head up the group that will remain until
Monday, Sept 6. This will comprise the final camp cleanup
team. The cleanup team has the responsibility to complete
the cleanup of our camp. At that point it should not be a
huge amount of work because every one of us will have
cleaned up our own area. We are each of us the cleanup team
for our own camping spot.
The cleanup team will make a shoulder-to-shoulder sweep
of the entire camp and our camp area. We will pick up
anything that isn't playa or a black rock. We will rake and
scrape the surface of our camp to help remove dust covered
debris and even out any unnatural piles and fill small
holes.This page includes some things we all must do, some things our camp must collectively
do, and some things we keep an eye out for an opportunity to do. This isn't just a set of
rules. It's an attempt to align our vision and live up to our responsibilities as citizens
of Black Rock City.
