St. Patrick’s Day has gradually become one of the most important days, for both the British and the Irish, where thousands of people in large cities celebrate for a very long day of jollity.
Here are the three stages, of St. Patrick’s Day, that go through over the day and the following!
1. The Silence before the storm
There is a quite peaceful period, in the air and people can be seen getting ready for partying. Roads are clean, and everything seems normal and silent.
2. The Mass Meeting Litter
Thousands of tourists, locals and beer bottles, every year, cover streets of big cities; cities such as Liverpool, Dublin, Derry, Belfast & Birmingham.

Patrick’s Day is one of the busiest days of the year, with bottles and cans getting kicked out-of-the-way as thousands of people, most in green hands, make their way from pub to pub. Revellers can be spotted urinating on walls of laneways, besides portable urinals being supplied and not meeting demands.
3. Road Sweeping, The Post-Apocalyptic Aftermath
Major clean-ups being after St. Patrick’s Day celebrations in capital go into overdrive every year.
After more than eight hours of partying, important parts of large cities are transformed into a post-apocalyptic wasteland. After the event, a major clean-up is planned to take place in the cities, the following day to clean up piled rubbish on streets. Unsung heroes wake up the next morning to clean up the whole mess using road sweeping machines and their hands.

Major events, such as St. Patricks day, happen very often in big cities; it seems like more and more waste appears on our streets. Litter, broken glass, discarded chewing gum, dropped food are all major contributors to increased demands, performance and durability of street cleaning Products.
Road cleaning requires major clean-ups after parades, so road re-opening is long even in major cities like Birmingham. Several roads, in Birmingham, remained closed from 6.30am until approximately 4 pm the following day of 2017 Parade.
People look forward to St. Patricks Day parades, but the parade crowd can’t be stopped from littering. As litter pile up on the streets, the massive clean-up operation is always underway across cities where Council workers struggle to cope.
