The day after Fourth of July is a day for cleaning up the trash revelers toss while watching the fireworks displays.
And they left a trail of trash in various spots throughout Texoma.
But as we found out those who threw the patriotic parties, weren't the ones cleaning up.
Trash, trash, and more trash. It's a surprise for some business owners
"We didn't really expect or were prepared for the response we got yesterday," said Candi Clark, the land owner of the Texoma Speedway.
"Too many people showed up all at once and no one anticipated on that, the young folks across the street they didn't anticipate it. I didn't anticipate it," said the owner of Double D Liquor, Jackey Dunn.
One of those young folks is Clark, and now she has a problem on her hands.
"The mess, we do have a big mess to pick up and we do have crews coming up to clean it this evening and into the morning," she said.
But that wasn't the only mess found around Texoma
"We had it all in one area this little pull off on 240 which is notorious for a place for people to fire off fireworks," TxDOT's P.I.O. Adele Lewis said.
This is the cost of just one night of fun celebrating the Fourth of July, litter crews say it will take twenty of these bags to clean up the area
Clark says with the help of family and friends it will take them three days to clean up the mess.
TxDOT says though they see this problem annually they wish people would consider enjoying the holiday in a different way.
"We are suppose to be celebrating our country and here they go ahead and trash our country and leave a huge mess for people to have to clean up and, tax payers money to clean up," Lewis said.
