(09/07/10) BROOKLYN - The Department of Sanitation has left no trace of the West Indian American Day Carnival in Brooklyn.

The NYPD could be seen packing up police barricades and besides the remaining parking signs, there is very little evidence that the biggest party of the year just happened in the borough.

The Department of Sanitation says it used 258 sanitation workers, 45 collection trucks and more than 50 mechanical street sweepers to ensure that businesses and residents had clear streets and sidewalks after the party was over.

The department says last year it collected about 200 tons of garbage after the carnival.
