40 Tons of trash, garbage piles return with Chesney concert

Whether it was better than past events or not, it’s hard to deny the impact of Kenny Chesney fans on Pittsburgh’s North Shore.

Following the country music concert on Saturday, sanitation crews were left with quite a mess to clean up.  We are not talking about just a few “empties” from tailgaters who crowd the parking lots hours before the evening concert.  Pittsburgh Public Works Director Guy Costa says that more than 40 tons of garbage was left behind.  Pittsburgh police also made several arrests and more than two dozen people had to be treated at local hospitals.
