2023’s Dirtiest Cities in America
City living has its advantages, but more residents usually means more pollution, more rats, and more trash. The problem is worse in some cities than in others.
LawnStarter ranked 2023’s Dirtiest Cities in America following one of the trashiest times of the year, the winter holiday season.
We compared over 150 of the biggest U.S. cities across four categories, including pollution, living conditions, infrastructure, and consumer satisfaction.
Depending on where you live, you may want to buy some air fresheners, mouse traps, or a can of Raid.
