Grey Water

From http://www.env.gov.bc.ca/bcparks/explore/notrace.html

“Any washing activities should take place at least 200 feet from natural water sources. Soap should be phosphate free and biodegradable. Lakes and streams may be a source of drinking water. Help protect the delicate balance of the water system.”

Garbage and Recycling

There are no garbage/recycling collection bins onsite…Pack it in, Pack it out. Like Burning Man. Please plan to bring garbage bags and bins, unlike in previous years, and enough room in your vehicle to leave with your garbage!


BITF is best experienced off-grid; if you do require power and you don’t have batteries/renewables but only generators, make sure they are quiet, or muffled, as the trees won’t hide the noise.. Take extra care when refuelling; generators should be placed on a tarp of other spillage prevention..


You must bring all supplies with you; no in-and-outs are permitted to get supplies.
