The Department of Sanitation in New York (DSNY) collected 29.6 tons of debris, including 7.6 tons of paper that was recycled after Friday’s parade, celebrating the U.S. Women’s soccer team and their World Cup win.
According to Grow NYC, residents produce 12,000 tons of waste each day, less than half of what was produced during an hour and 15-minute long parade.
Comparatively this parade was greener than most. In the past, the debris collection has been as high as 57.4 tons following the New York Yankees World Series Win in 1999.
