With the Foreshore festival choosing to use iconic public locales there’s a legitimate public interest in the clean-up.
To that end I wandered down this morning, three days later, to see how they’re going.
Most of the site is still fenced, and there’s a lot of heavy machinery still hard at work.
You can get down into Commonwealth Place from the Parliament House side and the grass in the bowl has taken a real pounding.
Little tiny shards of plastic from crushed drinking cups are everywhere and cigarette butts abound. But they’ve made a real effort to clean up the larger rubbish.
They’re not finished yet, but cleaning up all those plastic shards in compacted grass is going to be a bugger of a job.
