Dirtiest City in the Country

Tony Xu
New York City has been ranked as the dirtiest city in the country. A survey by cleaning service BusyBee ranked cities based on population density, litter, pests, and air pollution levels. In recent years, NYC’s Department of Sanitation has added more trucks, street sweepers, and expanded its recycling program. In the 2016 fiscal year, the Department of Sanitation found 95% of streets met or exceeded their standards of cleanliness. With over 8.5 million people, the highest population of any US city, maybe it’s not surprising there’s a lot of trash. But locals believe there is a difference between waste and filth.
