RENO, Nev. (MyNews4.com & KRNV) -- The 2014 Burning Man Festival has officially come to an end, and many local businesses are helping burners clean up playa dust they brought with them.
Burners are on their way back to reality after what they call a one-of-a-kind experience on the playa. "Amazing, it blew my mind, there's nowhere else like it in the world at all, it's crazy," said a group of Burners from London.
The group told News 4 they spent $3,000 dollars each to call Black Rock City home for a week, and said it was worth every penny. But they also said they are ready to clean off of all the playa dust. "Happy to be able to have a proper clean, it's like a weeklong event and you do enough, and you're like okay, I’ve had a good ride, I’m ready to have some sleep and clean now."
Fleetwash in Reno has one part of their clean up covered. The company expands their cleaning service for a few days after Burning Man ends. "We've been here about 6 years and as this event came up, people started stopping by and asking us if we washed RVs, so we just started washing a few of them and it grew every year," said Fleetwashs' Brian Konkel.
But Konkel said it is not about the business. "It's really interesting to meet all kinds of people from all over the world, everybody is upbeat and it's really fun to hear their adventures up at the playa."
Fleetwash also has donation boxes set up for unwanted items and food. The company donates everything to the Salvation Army and the Food Bank.
Several hotels around town are hosting post-burn events, including the Grand Sierra Resort. Their post pool party and Lex Nightclub events run through Wednesday. For more information, click here
