Jacob Johnson started this petition to Download Festival Organizers

hello, I am writing with a suggestion to potentially influence a higher percentage of waste and tents/gazebos/accessories to be taken home or disposed of properly in the camp for 2020 and onwards.
I have attended download consistently since 2014 and every year have camped 5 days camping, come Monday it is apparent by the security wandering the sites and demolition of property that anything abandoned is targeted by midday, this encourages an urgency to leave as well as an indication that returning for belongings would be a fruitless endeavor. the majority of campers over prepare so to speak and have the opportunity on Wednesday-Friday arriving to make multiple trips, an option that comes Monday is taken away.

I propose allowing download campers the whole of Monday to evacuate the campsite and to commence disposal and clean up on Tuesday. a delay of 1 day I wholeheartedly believe would make a substantial difference in the following respects.

1) campers would feel more assured that returning to their camp for a second trip would more certainly result in retrieving their goods in the conditions they were left in.
2) campers would feel less stressed for time and as a result of a more relaxed environment and atmosphere feel more encouraged to make the second trip
3) eco-warriors will have the time to not only take their own belongings but donate their time to clear up in the afternoons and contribute to making download the eco-friendly festival it strives to be as well as potentially having waste be reused for charity organizations.
4) there are those with the initiative to take what is left to sell or trade at a profit or acquire to reuse at future festivals, this will allow them the time to take multiple trips, properly dismantle and remove larger tents, gazebos, chairs, etc. resulting in substantially less landfill
5) traffic will be more dispersed across the day as opposed to concentrated to the morning and midday.

understandably hired staff will have to be accommodated for an extra night resulting in more costs in that respect however it is entirely possible that the result of allowing people the option to use the full day to their advantage will result in fewer days overall required for the cleanup crew to do their jobs with thousands of hands donating their time for free for whatever motives providing free labor.

the purpose of this petition is to raise awareness to the Download Festival organizers that this is in the best interests of all campers at Download Festival, please take the time to sign and make this possible.
