Trashy New Yorkers

Trash is a big issue in NYC. Most people don’t have a clue were it goes. I think Jersey, but don’t quote me on it. Knowing where to put your trash is tricky.

Some people just leave it wherever they darn well please

New Yorkers eat a lot of bananas it seems, cuz I find them the most

This one is delicately placed in the nook of a tree

Bikes are really convieniant trash recepticals.

I think they believe it’s not as bad as throwing it on the ground

Some just hang entire bags of trash on other people’s property

Or decorate their shrubs with it

Even the dead are lazy with their trash

New Yorkers are well hydrated. Finding the appropriate place to dispose of their beverage containers is sometimes a challenge though.

It’s almost like a game of tetris with soda bottles

Coffee cups fit perfectly in trees.

But since there aren’t that many trees in NYC

Electric Meters do the trick

And they fit Vitamin Water bottles perfectly, too!

Some New Yorkers are super sneaky. I noticed this one behind the machine you buy subway passes from

Now it’s time for a pop quiz. Can you find the trash in this picture?
Hint: This is a really obvious one

Unless you don’t consider shoes to be garbage

How about in this one?

I know it’s hard to believe…

but this New Yorker went out of his/her way to hide their Polar Spring water bottle when there was a trash can only 10 feet behind it (as seen in the previous picture)

I’m gonna miss NYC this summer..

But I am not going to miss this next picture of the most offensive thing I’ve ever come across in my life.

WARNING: IF YOU HAVE A WEAK STOMACH, DO NOT LOOK AT THIS LAST PICTURE!!!

Yes, this is what you think it is…and we all had to try our best to step over it to get out of the subway. Just when you fall in love with such a difficult city, you get human diarrhea all over your Crocs.
