You've all heard the saying "it's a tough job but somebody's got to do it." That's true of the clean up after Chilifest.
The two day event left tons of trash, mostly beer cans, in a huge field in Burleson County. Patrick Young and his small crew started the clean up early Sunday morning. Young explains his system for cleaning up the mess.
" Cleaning it up, you've got to know how to clean up first and then you go from there. You kind of follow which way the winds is going, which way the trash is going and clean it up basically from there. That's what I do," said Young.
It usually takes over a week to get everything cleaned up. In the interest of the environment, all the aluminum cans collected are recycled.
