Trash is a growing problem in San Francisco's parks, especially after a holiday.

Quite a mess was left behind after the 4th of July celebrations at Fort Mason's Great Meadow in San Francisco.

A spokeswoman for the Golden Gate National Recreation Area says people don't even try to put their litter in or next to a trash can. She says it's getting worse and it's stealing money that can be put to better use.

Workers collected 32 cubic yards of junk from the meadow early Thursday.
