The Fringe Re-use and Recycle Days returned to Fringe Central this year by popular demand, concluding the 2014 Festivals season. Venues and companies that participated in the Fringe brought used set items, props, costumes, unused publicity materials and other production materials from their runs at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe to be swapped for other items or recycled.

The Fringe Reuse and Recycle Days were more popular than ever this year, with many companies bringing and swapping items. We were fortunate to have photographer Julien Pearly capturing the two-day event. His video (below) shows the amount of traffic in and out of Fringe Central.

As part of a Creative Carbon Scotland Case Study in 2011, 12 tonnes of unused print were collected at the Fringe Reuse and Recycle Days. Through this monitoring, major Fringe venues were able to reduce print runs for the following year. We anticipate our data collection and analysis from this year’s Re-use and Recycle Days will be equally successful and informative.
