Prague – After the New Year’s Eve celebrations, fifty manual cleaning workers and two dozen machines will clean Prague. The first of them had to hit the streets of the city about three hours after midnight. They will have to clean up an area of about 174,000 square meters. The spokesperson of the Technical Administration of Communications (TSK) Barbora Lišková told ČTK today.
The center of the metropolis is traditionally the most tumultuous celebration. Their appearance this year will be affected by the situation around the coronavirus epidemic and the ban on the use of pyrotechnics. The amount of clutter can be expected to be lower than before the pandemic. There was even less cleaning work last year, when a night curfew applied due to the lockdown.
“On the right bank of the Vltava, an area of 133,000 square meters will be cleaned, and on the left bank of the square, less than 41,000 square meters will be cleaned.
According to the plan, the cleaning should start at 03:00 with machine cleaning on Wenceslas Square and Hradčany Square. In other locations, cleaning will start at 06:00 at the latest. “Given the current situation, I assume that he will be able to clean during the morning shift,” the spokeswoman said. Among other things, Wenceslas Square and the adjacent streets, Old Town Square, the so-called Royal Route, Charles Bridge, Lesser Town Square, Nerudova Street or Hradčanské Square will be cleaned. Large containers will also be located around the center.
