TX-DOT cleans up roads after Fourth of July

After a festive night of popping off fireworks to celebrate the Fourth of July, piles of debris can be seen along Lubbock county roadways.

TX-DOT crews will hit the streets on Saturday to pick up a lot of the trash that was left behind from Friday night.

TX-DOT reminds residents that while the crews will be out cleaning, the more you help out, the less you'll have to pay.

"Our crews are going to do whatever they need to do to get their job done, but eventually it does come out if the tax payers pocket - having to pull guys from their regularly scheduled work to go out there and clean up because we want to make sure that the roads are clean and safe for the traveling public."

When it comes to cleaning up fireworks safely, spray the duds with water, wrap the soaked fireworks in a trash bag and then place it in the trash bin.
