Rock for People was one of the first festivals in the Czech Republic to introduce back-up cups. Why? Because the best waste is the waste that doesn’t get generated at all. So whether you remember the cups with the dumplings, Karel Gott or you kept some last year, the system will remain the same this year.

For the first Nicknack cup of 0.5 l, 0.4 l, 0.3 l or for a hot drink (the so-called Hot Cup) you will pay a refundable deposit of 50 CZK. If you go to get another beer, limo, mixed drink or coffee and return the cup, you will get a new one of the same volume. But you don’t pay the deposit again. You can spin cups like this for the entire festival. At the end of the festival, you can either return the cup in the special cup return tent and the 50 CZK deposit will be yours, or take it home as a souvenir

What else do we deposit?

Did you know that materials such as PET and aluminium are ideal for take-back and reuse? That’s why we don’t wait for legislation and run our own deposit system for PET bottles and drink cans. When you buy a drink in one of these containers on the premises, a deposit of CZK 5 is automatically added to the price. When you come to return the beverage container to the special point, we will refund your deposit. A maximum of 5 items can be returned at a time.

Please note, once you take the PET bottle or can out of the festival grounds, we will not allow you back into the grounds with it and you will not be able to draw back the deposit.

You will find bins for sorted waste in a number of places in the grounds. So PET bottles and cans can be sorted. The forfeited deposit will do well with us – we will use these funds to plant more trees on campus.

Of course, we won’t reduce all waste to zero right away. So you might be interested in finding out how you can get involved or how we manage waste afterwards. See the Waste section for details of what types of waste we sort.
