Leave No Trace

Protecting & Preserving the Playa

There is no garbage collection service at Burning Man. We are the largest Leave No Trace (LNT) event in the world — LNT is one of our core principles — and it is up to all of us to ensure the longterm survival of our event by practicing LNT techniques to remove all Matter Out of Place (MOOP) from Black Rock City. In this section, you’ll learn Leave No Trace techniques that you can practice before your departure for Black Rock City, during your time on playa, and after you depart.
