Selwyn Sounds came alive at Lincoln Event Centre and welcomed 6,000 attendees, kitted out with camp chairs and picnic blankets to enjoy an incredible day of music with a vibrant and fun, yet relaxed atmosphere!
The epic lineup included Gin Wigmore, Sir Dave Dobbyn and the Hoodoo Gurus. Closed Loop partnered with Selwyn Sounds for the third year, to provide sustainable waste management services for the 1-day concert.
Boosting repurposing rates
Throughout the 2023 event, the Closed Loop team hand-sorted 47.3m³ of waste and achieved a diversion rate of 72.5% from landfill – this means 72.5% of all waste collected at this event was either recycled, repurposed or composted. Our team carefully improved our processes which enabled an incredible 24.4% increase in landfill diversion when compared to the previous event, in 2021.
