The article talks about the sanitation approach taken in cleaning the city of Frankfurt, Germany after the public viewing of the World Cup. Chemicals do the job, says Bernd Hant, part of the cleanup crew of the privatised FES, Frankfurter Entsorgungs und Servicegesellschaft. Before the perfume can be applied, the affected areas must be sprayed with an 80-metre-long high-pressure hose. Some 8000 litre of water are needed daily to purge the last traces of recycled beer, twice the amount that is normally needed to hose down the city's streets.
