What’s next when 4th of July is over? It is time for the cleaning of all the trash left on the streets and on the beach as well as fireworks left behind.
The biggest part of the cleaning will be done by volunteers temporarily hired to help in the process. Some of them admit they find very weird items such a clothes and underwear. The most amazing piece of trash was found in Lynn Creek Park and it was a barbecue grill which probably has been useless for its owners and they decided to get rid of it.
Most of the shore is also full of trash. The 238 volunteers in Santa Cruz gathered 1.657 pounds of junk which in fact is less than the previous fourth of July. The things people left on the beach were cans from beer and food containers mostly. Although the amount of rubbish is claimed to be less, the cleaners cannot stand but share how amazed they are by the trash people leave behind.
There are also many fireworks to be cleaned. Fortunately most of the people take care of their own firework mess because they can get a fine of 100 to 500 dollars. In the United states it is against the law to leave fireworks on the street and not clean it.
