The party isn't over: Country Jam clean-up

By  | 

MACK, Colo. (KKCO) -- The party is over and campers have been making their way out, but for some, Country Jam isn't quite done just yet.

Around 140 kids from the Collbran Job Corps spent their Monday morning combing through every inch of the County Jam festival grounds and campground cleaning up.

They started at 7:00 a.m. doing a macro sweep of the land, and then going back for the little things, like bottle caps and wrappers.

Crews were on site each day before the gates opened, sweeping up from the night before. They also have a team in place each day picking up trash during the concerts.

"We have about 300 dumpsters on site of various sizes and we do a couple thousand tons of trash throughout the week," said Sally Lidinsky, the festival director of Country Jam.

Collbran Job Corps also works to set up seats and chairs and tables in the VIP section. Monday, they had to clear up all the seating as well.
While it seems like a massive job, they are done by noon.

The group trains all year for the festival clean up.
