Fireworks that lit up the sky this weekend could be found cluttering fields on Monday.
“These people are littering. They don’t pick up, so we’ve got to dedicate a whole day to doing it,” said Anselmo Ramos with the Texas Department of Transportation.
Ramos and a crew of TxDOT coworkers brought three dump trucks to rural locations east of Lubbock. The vehicles hold 10 cubic yards each, but by mid-afternoon all three were three-quarters full.
“It’s all firework displays,” he said.
