The five-day festival, which had urged music-lovers to clean up after themselves, calls in more than 1,000 cleaning volunteers in the aftermath...
The clean up, which costs about £785,000 and is expected to last six weeks, began as 200,000 festival-goers head home.
Despite organisers urging festival-goers to take their rubbish with them, and to try to leave “zero waste”, photographs after the event show the field strewn with rubbish.
Abandoned tents, camping chairs and even wellington boots can be seen left behind in the wake of the festival, which offered a stellar line up of artists including Radiohead, Foo Fighters, Ed Sheeran and Katy Perry this year.
The festival tried to encourage attendees to take their tent home with them, saying: "A tent is for life not just for a festival."
But many of the tents have still been left behind, with some to be donated to charities while the rest will be dumped in a landfill.
One image of the aftermath of the festival shows a broken pair of glasses, and old cups surrounded by laughing gas canisters left behind from the raucous festival.
Other photographs show rubbish spilling out of bins, with birds soaring overhead.
But not everyone tried to put their litter in the bins, with the field in front of the Pyramid stage covered in huge amounts of waste.
