NEW YORK (WABC) -- The New York City Department of Sanitation is expecting tons of trash to be generated during Friday's ticker-tape parade.
The parade is being held in the "Canyon of Heroes" in Lower Manhattan to honor the U.S. women's soccer team, which won its third World Cup championship.
To prepare for the cleanup of the confetti and other trash, DSNY said it will have more than 400 workers on duty specifically assigned to the parade.
