SF: Pillow fight in Justin Herman Plaza, did they clean up?
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. — Those who spent Valentine’s Day here in San Francisco and took part in the Justin Herman Plaza pillow fight, say yes, they did clean up.
Click the blue link for the previous article on the concerns that the San Francisco Public Works had over the $35,000 clean up bill that they had in the past.
Now one of the organizers has come forward and told this Examiner that the clean up did take place after the 2011 Justin Herman Plaza Valentine’s Day event.
See the answers that were given here:
KTVU Channel 2 News in San Francisco also reported on the six o’clock news on February 15, 2011 that the bill came to around $8,000 this year instead of the previous $35,000.
Organizers for next year would like to get that bill to zero by buying a power-washer to get rid of any remaining feathers.
They managed to collect 150 bags of feathers from the exploded pillows and they were able to donate 200 used pillows to the Sisters of Mercy who gave them to low-income housing residents around the San Francisco Bay Area.
The City of San Francisco had asked that organizers for the event set up services like cleanup, security and port-a-potties to make the event run better.
