At the end of a full day of visitors at Dolores Park on Saturday, the lawns were in pretty good shape and most of the trash had been picked up, but that changed later at night after dozens of revelers celebrated July 4th. By 6 a.m. today the park was awash in trash.

“This has to stop,” said the supervisor cleaning up the trash.

There were plenty of half empty trash cans – the east side of the park is nearly paved in trash cans. The problem was that few bothered to use them. So early this morning folks from the SF Mime Troupe and the homeless who may have stayed overnight in the park helped the work crew clean up.
