Rubbish dumped on Sydney's streets after New Year's Eve was enough to fill an Olympic size swimming pool.
Director of City Services for the City of Sydney David Riordan said the council employs upwards of 300 people to clean up the streets after the celebrations.
'If you can imagine a large Olympic swimming pool full of rubbish that’s what we collect in one night,' Mr Riordan said.
