Some Burners like to party. Others like to enjoy the art or attend workshops. Many burners focus on leading crews, running their theme camps or their own brand of gifting. But there is one thing that all burners have in common.
They all need to poo!
If you have been to Seed (or anywhere in the world) then you know what a difference it makes to your experience when toilets are clean and functional, well stocked with paper and endowed with running water. We all love clean facilities, and that means we need a team of heroes to make it so. A team prepared to step up, and make everyone’s bathroom experiences enjoyable, relaxing, and perhaps even memorable. As part of the Sanitation crew, you’ll ensure all the toilets are functional, full of water, clean and stocked with paper twice a day. Don’t worry, the real dirty work of sewage removal is done by the paid professionals and you will be supplied with everything you need to stay clean like our Squeaky Queen.
Do you have what it takes?? If you do, you’ll be rewarded richly. As a sanitation crew member, you’re entitled to the following perks:
- A hot shower after each shift!!!
- 3 meals a day during build and packdown
- A meal and self serve snacks every day you volunteer during the event
And if that’s not enough, you’ll more than likely find yourself randomly showered with compliments, appreciation and low-level hero worship from grateful burners. Here’s some of the awesome props from our 2017 poo crew legends:
“Definitely crewing next year! Thanks. Thursday morning ghostbuster crew. Playing techno, with flashing lights in hazard suits. Just doing my job ma'am." - Niki Wheatley
“It's really not as intense as you'd think, really just changing paper rolls and dusting off the place. And the gratitude is insane! People thank you left right and centre when you are in sanitation, you are treated like superheroes. And that's quite lovely!” – Bruno Helbert
“Was easy and it was a great team!” - Jackie Turner
Don’t let your chance to poo crew slip on through like a ghostly number 2! To grab your position on Burning Seed Sanitation Services’ 2018 team, pop to the community crew page on our website and get in touch.
An important P.S. Even if you don’t volunteer for Sanitation, you are all poo crew!! We love to serve but we are not your mums and maids, we are not here to deal with your MOOP and the cleanliness of our toilets is mostly up to YOU!
