Nearly 1 million people crowded into Times Square on New Year’s Eve to watch the ball drop and ring in 2015 with confetti.
But it only takes 178 sanitation workers to clean it up the next day.
More than 2,000 pounds of confetti is dropped at the strike of midnight by an official confetti master (yes, that’s a job) and his team.
The 178 workers use 26 mechanical brooms, 25 trucks, 38 leaf blowers and other assorted equipment to clean up the mess made ringing in the new year, according to the City of New York Department of Sanitation.
