Trash from Fiesta clogs the San Antonio River.
Talk about a trashy way to end Fiesta.
The San Antonio River Authority reports that garbage from Fiesta made a mess of the river.
"What happens on the streets of #Fiesta, ends up in our creeks and river. We wish everyone a Happy Fiesta, but please be considerate of the environment and keep it clean," the organization said on Facebook
"A lot of the things that we found in the trash, a lot of them can be recycled," San Antonio River Authority spokeswoman Clarissa Perez told Fox 29
. "So if we can encourage people to recycle and throw away their trash, that keeps these things out of rivers."
Officials told KSAT 12
the trash, which is piled along an 8-mile stretch of the river in the Mission Reach, will take weeks to clean up.
