Glastonbury cleanup: grandfather clock and night owl found asleep under pile of clothes amongst strangest things

Organizers have urged visitors to Glastonbury to ‘leave no trace’.

The event encourages revelers to recycle, use trash cans and stock up on water bottles to reduce the impact on Worthy Farm.

But as more than 200,000 left the festival earlier this week, images showed rubbish strewn across the landscape – albeit less than in previous years.

An army of garbage collectors have been working to clear this up, as have volunteers during the festival.

And they’ve shared stories of the weird and wonderful items they stumbled upon while cleaning up litter from Worthy Farm.

dr Matt Crowcombe, whose charity SOS Africa is helping with the cleanup, said volunteers found a grandfather clock near the Pyramind stage this year as revelers left on Monday.

Glastonbury organizers urged revelers to “love the farm” and “leave no trace”.


“I have no idea how it got there, but apparently someone collected it,” he told local media.

There was also a three-piece suit nearby, he said.

dr Crowcombe confirmed this The Independent both were spotted off the stage around 12pm, which has featured headliners Billie Eilish, Sir Paul McCartney and Kenrick Lamar throughout the festival.

Kidney Research UK is another charity helping with the clean up during and after the festival.

The dirt left behind seemed less this year than at previous festivals


“By far the most common items we find are inflatable boats; this year’s collection included a giraffe, a paddling pool and a giant foam fish,” said Marc Shaw of the charity.

“Alongside novelties we often find people’s underwear, and this year we found someone sound asleep under a pile of what we hope were his own clothes.”

Mr Shaw said volunteers also found a mug filled with vomit and joked that a festival experience is “never complete” without this discovery.

It’s certainly not the first time volunteers have found strange objects cleaning up Glastonbury Festival.

Clean-up efforts over the past few years have reportedly uncovered a “poo in a bra” hanging in a tree, a cannonball and mannequins.
