To apply the 4 “R”s! Refuse (say no to what you don’t really need), Reduce (waste), Reuse (rather than throw away), Recycle (what can’t be reused, lent or put to another use).

1. Sorting waste

  • lamps, batteries, etc.).
  • Dispose of large non-reusable and non-recyclable materials in dumps.
  • Beforehand and regularly during filming, inform the crew of the waste action plan in place: sorting, waste reduction and access to dumps. Make use of crew lunches and/or meetings.
  • CO2 - Account for the volume of waste noting the number of rubbish sacks and containers used during filming.
  • Sort and transport any special and/or hazardous waste to dumps.
