MIAMI (CBSMiami) — Once the music and neon is gone from Ultra Music Festival, it’s up to hundreds of workers to clean up the mess left behind by more than 55,000 attendees and fans.
As they stream out of the Bayfront Park, nearly 200 janitors and cleaning professionals will be heading into the park to cleanup the area before the Monday workweek begins.
The South Florida based company, SFM Services is in charge of the clean up.
The company has been cleaning up every night and set up more than 900 trash can boxes and thousands of trash liners in Bayfront Park throughout the 3-day long festival.
They estimate their janitors have cleaned up about 800 cubic yards or 160,000 plus gallons of garbage over three days. This would equal about 18,000, 55-gallon garbage bags full of trash.
Cleaning crews have picked up items like feathers, tutus, men’s and women’s underwear, lost keys and phones.
“This is one of the biggest cleanup jobs we do across South Florida every year. Looks like the trend this year has been capes and headgear,” said Christian Infante of SFM Services. “We have found everything from phones, keys, unicorn hats to feathers and thousands of stickers.”
