Cleanup underway as Mid-State Fair wraps in Paso Robles

It's the final day of the California Mid-State Fair, and maintenance crews already have a game plan prepared to clean everything up.

The fairgrounds and concert arenas see tens of thousands of people during the fair. But shortly after the guests head home each night, around 140 maintenance workers are cleaning everything, from the bleachers to the concrete.

They also take out dozens of recycling and trash bins, and all that trash adds up! On a typical day, five 20-square-yard trash containers are filled to the brim.

Sunday at 11, the final cleanup begins.

"It will take roughly ten days to put everything away that was out for the fair, put up our portable stalls, and get ready for our next event," said Maintenance Supervisor Chico Cerda.

Before and after the fair, the maintenance crew employs around 60 staff members.
