Description: Site crew preps site with caution tape. Detox cleanup crew members come from different directions, converging on the site. They meticulously pick up existing debris from the narrow strip of land just to the North of the Bemis Center for Contemporary Art. The Site controller ensures adequate breaks and engages with anyone from the public that has questions. The response is vague and focused on "we're cleaning up, and should be done pretty soon." At the finish, the debris is placed into one large bag and the Assistant pitches it in the Bemis' dumpster. A detoxification process is performed on one of the workers at the end of the cleanup event. They board a van and drive away.
