Deposit recycle system

We work with a deposit system on all cups during this event. We work with a deposit system on all cups during this event. When getting a first drink, visitors pay 0,5 token for the use of a hard cup. All empty cups can be returned to the bar for a new drink or recycle token. By doing this, we make sure that all materials are collected and sorted in the right container. After the event, each material is recycled. This way of recycling is very easy, with much love for nature and a perfect way to reduce our waste!

How does it work?

  1. How does it work?

    1. When you get your first drink at the bar, you’ll have to pay 0,5 token extra to make use of the hard cup.
    2. With each drink you order, you hand in your empty cup. If you don’t want another drink, you can also hand in your empty cup in exchange for a recycle token.
    3. Lost your recycle token and/or your cup? Then you have to pay the 0.5 token again. Broken cups are not accepted.
    4. At the end of the festival, our team will be ready to recollect all used hard cups! You can hand the empty cups over to them, so that the cups can remain intact and be recycled.

Why does Verknipt have ‘sealed tickets’?

Verknipt uses these sealed tickets because the ticket sale will be fairer. By using these tickets, it makes it impossible for scammers to resell their tickets through unofficial third parties/secondary markets. Tickets can only be sold through our verified partner ‘TicketSwap’ by Secure Swap. Through Secure Swap they exchange the ticket for a brand new one, so the buyer has a 100% chance to get into the event with the ticket. Also, it is not possible for sellers to ask more than 120% of the price through TicketSwap, so the ticket will always be sold for a fair price.
