Leave No Trace

Hyperborea strives to be an efficient Leave No Trace (LNT) event, there is no trash pickup at Hyperborea so it is up to all of us to eliminate Matter Out of Place (MOOP), whatever you bring in, you bring out. This includes anything that might be trash: bottles, rope, debris, fruit peels, cigarette butts, glitter, and almost anything else.

If you want to go above and beyond helping with our LNT initiative, check out our Leave No Trace team for more information and opportunities.

Common LNT topics

Portapotties 

If it’s not naturally produced by you, or it’s one-ply toilet paper, don’t put it in there.

Absolutely no wet wipes. No pads. No tampons. These items clog the hoses, which means some poor soul will have to put their hands in there to clear them out. Instead, to dispose of these items, double bag them and place them in your personal garbage or in your camp trash.

Trash 

You will need to haul out all your own trash. There are no trash cans on site.

Radical self-reliance means you are responsible for all your own trash, so please bring bags with you and even carry a  bag with you to dispose of garbage you find on your adventures

Ensure that whatever you bring has the least amount of trash possible. Unwrap and dispose of packaging at home. Do not bring disposable plates/cutlery/cups.

Cigarette butts are the worst kind of MOOP. Bring a tin to carry on as an ashtray and butt store.

It is absolutely unacceptable to leave anything for others to pick up after you – it is a direct violation of the principles.
