Digging is only permitted for constructing a latrine or a grease-pit. When you plan the position of your tents carefully, there is no need to dig trenches (gullies) around the tent in case of heavy rainfall (If necessary ask the cam staff for advice)
From Ascension Day till the end of August a waste container is stationed at the site. Outside this period troops must take their waste with them when leaving. The waste container is only to be used for “household” waste. Other items like out-of-use theme material or broken camp equipment is the troop’s responsibility.
Waste disposal is getting more and more expensive. When you do your shopping, try to reduce waste, please think about that! Seperate your waste as much as possible. The camp staff will give you some instruction on this matter.
Tins, milk, cartons, etc. take less space in the waste container when you make them flat.

At the end of camp, the leader-in-charge reports to the camp staff. They check the troop site. If everything is in order, deposit will be paid back and says goodbye. Departure is at 12.00 o’clock at the latest.
