http://nyccontainer.disorient.info

DISORIENT is pleased to announce that we will be organizing the NYC Container for 2015 as a fundraiser for DISORIENT. Proceeds from the NYC Container will go directly to the creation of art for our Playa frontage in 2015.
We want to give a huge shout out and THANK YOU to the NYC Container Crew for taking such good care of us in years past and passing the baton. Without them, we would truly be lost.
For all of you with questions, the general answer is, we are keeping all rules established by the NYC Container Crew. All of our policies, prices, etc. are detailed here for reference. If you have specific questions, not addressed below, please email us at nyccontainer[at]disorient[dot]info.

PACKING YOUR THINGS FOR THE CONTAINER

REMEMBER: ALL BINS SHOULD BE PACKED FULLY. HUNDREDS AND HUNDREDS OF POUNDS OF THINGS WILL BE STACKED ON TOP OF YOUR BINS, THE CONTAINERS WILL BE MOVED FROM TRAIN TO TRAIN, TRAIN TO TRUCK, ETC. PACKING YOUR THINGS TIGHT WILL HELP PROTECT THEM.
DISORIENT IS NOT RESPONSIBLE FOR ANY DAMAGE TO YOUR PROPERTY.

Bins will NOT be provided. All items must be packed and properly labelled before your load in time. Packing and labelling is YOUR responsibility. (We suggest heavy duty storage bins.) No bins with wheels!

All items must be boxed well, this includes bikes and strangely shaped items. NO metal, wood, etc. should be sticking out of anything. Things will be packed on top of or next to others and we are unable to do so unless items are boxed properly, think TETRIS.
IF YOU HAVE A VERY LARGE OR STRANGELY SHAPED ITEM YOU MUST LET US KNOW ASAP. THIS MEANS EMAIL US AT nyccontainer [at]disorient[dot]info.
ANY ITEM NOT PACKED PROPERLY WILL NOT BE ALLOWED ON THE CONTAINER AND NO REFUND WILL BE PROVIDED.
PVC, conduit, wood, etc. MUST be taped or ratchet strapped together, securely so they will not fall out of the bundle, roll away, etc.

ALL bicycles must be taken apart and put in boxes. You can find bike boxes at most bike stores, unboxed boxes WILL NOT be allowed on the container.

YOU MUST LABEL EVERYTHING YOU PUT ON THE CONTAINER WITH YOUR NAME, PHONE NUMBER, EMAIL ADDRESS AND ON PLAYA ADDRESS.

ITEMS PROHIBITED ON THE CONTAINER

DON’T EVEN THINK ABOUT PUTTING THE FOLLOWING ON THE CONTAINER:
- ILLEGAL ITEMS
- ALL ITEMS FLAMMABLE AT HIGH HEAT, OR EVEN THOSE YOU THINK *MIGHT* BE
- GENERATORS UNLESS THEY ARE BRAND NEW AND NEVER HAVE HAD GAS IN THEM – WE WILL CHECK
- EXPLOSIVES
- GAS
- FUEL
- COMPRESSED GAS
- ANYTHING DAMAGED BY EXTREME HEAT (i.e. batteries, uncanned or dry food, etc.)
The containers get very very hot, at times in excess of 120°F. At that level of heat, those items which cannot stand high heat will often explode and ruin everything around them (like batteries) or they can start a fire (like fire flow toys with fuel on them). So, don’t put them in the container.

DISORIENT reserves the right to open any and all items loaded on the containers. REMEMBER your stuff is not the only thing on the container, so don’t be irresponsible. If you blow up the container, cause a fire, cause the container to be pulled and search due to suspicion of illegal substances NO ONES stuff will make it to playa. Don’t be that guy.

ON PLAYA

There is no guaranteed arrival date on the playa. Once the container leaves NYC, we have no control. It may show up late, so if you need it to survive, we suggest not packing it on the container. We will do our best to keep you up to date on the arrival date of the container on the Playa via the NY Burning Man List and regular emails. We estimate the Containers arriving during the beginning of build week.

ON PLAYA LOCATION

Disorient will be located at 8:00 and Esplanade. Containers will be located near the back of our lot, along A.

ON PLAYA HOURS

The container will only be open at certain hours. THIS IS NON NEGOTIABLE.
It will open in the morning (usually around 10ish) and will be closed by 8pm EVERY NIGHT. It will remain open all day.
AT ALL OTHER TIMES THE CONTAINER WILL BE LOCKED AND INACCESSIBLE. If you have a problem with these hours or cannot commit to picking up your items then, we suggest you ship your items another way. We love you, but our DOers are at Burning Man too!
Container hours are the same for both loading and unloading.

ON PLAYA LOADING/UNLOADING

DISORIENT WILL NOT PACK YOUR THINGS FOR YOU ON THE PLAYA. MAKE SURE YOU ARE THERE AT THE RIGHT TIME AND CAN PHYSICALLY LOAD YOUR THINGS ON AND OFF THE CONTAINER. ANY ITEMS LEFT NEAR THE CONTAINERS OR AT OUR CAMP THAT ARE NOT PLACED ON THE CONTAINERS WILL BE DONATED, BURNED, BLOWN UP OR WHATEVER WE FEEL LIKE.

DO NOT LEAVE YOUR EXCESS PACKING MATERIALS AT OUR CAMP OR ON THE CONTAINERS, WE DON'T WANT YOUR MOOP!!

YOU are responsible for unloading and reloading your things on the Container on the Playa. Make sure that you can lift your stuff on and off the container.
All items reloaded on the container must be packed in boxes, just as it went on. This includes bikes!


CONTAINERS WILL BE RELOADED ON SEPTEMBER 6, 2015 FOR SHIPPING BACK EAST. Further updates will be provided on this procedure.

MATH

CUBIC FEET = LENGTH X WIDTH X HEIGHT
1 CUBIC FOOT = 1728 INCHES
EXAMPLE:
CoCo’s bin is 18in x 12 in x 20 in. [18 x 12 x 20 = 4,320]
CoCo’s bin is 4,320 cubic inches [4,320 / 1728 = 2.5]
CoCo’s bin is 2.5 cubic feet

CoCo must purchase 3 cubic feet on the container.
