Sustainable Development



Since 2009, Chassepierre is part of a sustainable development approach.
Since 2012 , the Festival waste sorting  aims to reduce the environmental impact of events and Prevention management of household packaging waste.
In 2020, Chassepierre joins DEMO, a cooperative project between France and Belgium about sustainable development during festivals and music events.

How does it limit the Festival 's impact on the environment?

In a constant concern to reduce the waste generated by the event, Chassepierre proposes several initiatives ...

One, Two, Tri!

Waste is sorted and recycled through 50 Eco Zones spread over the site! Objective: More than 90 % of sorted waste .

Eco Zone?

Eco Zones are areas to throw compounds and sort your waste : blue bins for PMC (bottles and plastic bottles , metal containers , dishes and trays, unused aluminum metal lids and caps , beverage cartons ) and black bins for all-comers (all other packaging and plastic items ( pots, trays , bags ... ), old sandals and broken glasses , broken umbrella, greasy waste , aluminum foil ... ) .

A few figures

In 2014, 3120 kg of all kinds, 780 kg of PMC, 520 kg of cardboard.
In 2015 and 2016, 40 bags of 240 liters of PMC (130 in 2014).
In 2017, 65 bags of PMC (larger number of visitors); 20 m3 of all-comers and 10 m3 of paper/cartons (the same since 2014).

Average festival in Wallonia : 2 kg for 1 to 2 days festival . Florenville average 175 kg / capita / year : 365d = 0479 kg / pers. Production of household waste a festival in Chassepierre is 0193 kg or 41.5 % below the average hab / j .

A device for entertainment and strolling proposed by Eco Team

With the Eco -Team, you 'll never look at waste the way you did before. Their animations will cheer up your actions through comic- lasting wanderings . They are also responsible for draining the islands sort and awareness of the sorting.

We love the reusable cups !

For the sixth time this year , we will use reusable cups thus reducing much of the waste from the event. Thanks to the bond, the public takes them back after each use. These cups will be available at the bars of the Festival!

A few figures

100,000 disposable cups avoided or 0.8 T cups avoided. Gain in terms of cleanliness, waste volume and conveyed picture.

Sorting Table !

In collaboration with Province Of Luxembourg, Chassepierre has a sorting table to further sort the PMC.
