It's hard to believe how fast time flies, but we are close to celebrating 20 years of cleaning up The Kansas City St. Patrick's Day Parade! What many people don't see is that we are actually the first and last float out on the parade route. We start the morning bright and early at 3am loading 100s of portable toilets and setting them throughout the parade route. Several hours later we get a couple of hours to breathe before the whole crew arrives and we load up the sweepers, blowers, roll back, roll-offs, turn up CW McCall's Convoy" and head on down the road. We then arrive to the parade early so we can enjoy team building hot dogs and the yellow team chant!
Here is an insert from an article showcasing a past St. Patrick's Day Parade clean-up.
Around 2:30 p.m. the first parade was over and another began. More than a dozen mechanized street sweepers from American Sweeping Inc. worked their way north on Grand, clearing the discarded and blowing cans, bottles, bags and miles of silly string, sucking up debris in figure eights, avoiding one another with the grace of dancers. Within an hour, you couldn't even tell a party had happened.
