175,000 people absolutely trashed Glastonbury

Once the music ends, the t-shirts are sold, and campers pack up their tents, what’s left is a massive amount of trash. That’s certainly the case for Worthy Farm, the site of Glastonbury, where 175,000 attendees have left the festival grounds looking like a scene out of Walking Dead.

According to the Mirror, it will take six weeks (or 38 more days than the length of the actual festival) to fully clean up the site and return it to a fully functional farm for grazing cattle. A cleanup crew of 800 will be tasked with the job of removing 200 metric tons of waste, including 54 tons of cans and battles, 45 tons of cardboard, and 11 tons of clothing and camping gear.

Below, check out scenes of the destruction:
