New, 1 comment



And so, the Seattle Gum Wall is no more. Well, for now. Cleaning of the iconic tourist spot was completed Friday afternoon. Pike Place Market shared some stats from the clean-up and they're exactly as gross and/or crazy as you'd expect.

· The cleaning of the Gum Wall took an estimated 130 hours.
· The weight of the gum that was cleaned off the wall was 2,350 pounds or 1.175 tons.
· The gum filled 94 gallon buckets.
