r/DeTrashed - Saving the only planet we'll ever have!
Our sub is best viewed on Old Reddit.
Want a flag next to your username? Of course you do! Check the 'flair' box above and then click (edit) to select your national/local flag!
This is r/DeTrashed, reddit's premiere sub committed to cleaning up the environment one piece of trash at a time. Please post anything related to picking up trash. Anything from picking up a bottle while walking your dog in the morning, cleaning up a campsite or even organizing a clean-up event.
Remember although this sub was started on just picking up trash and cleaning the environment, it is so much more. Please share anything that involves taking an active step to improve the earth, like cleaning up trash, recycling, removing invasive species, green improvements on your house, magnet fishing, clearing gutters, etc.! Be creative!
Keep in mind the main point of this sub isn't about bragging (although you are allowed to), it is about encouraging others to help out and get involved. Although some people may say our actions alone don't make much of a difference, when there is an entire subreddit dedicated to it and encouraging others, then we can absolutely make a difference!
To everyone who has been spreading this sub by mentioning it in threads and such, THANK YOU! We have grown so much since our creation and we hope to become one of the largest, most engaging subs on reddit because that'll mean more people are DeTrashing the earth than ever before. Please keep it up and continue to encourage others to stop by for a visit (or, hopefully, to stay!).

I just wanted to thank you all for your inspiration and wholesome content. Your efforts have inspired me to start picking up the trash in my area. I started last night and picked up maybe 3 pounds. The reusable bag was found on the side of the road. So I thought it was appropriate for it to carry the trash. Hopefully this is the first bag of many.
I also wrote a short article on stewardship and the DeTrashed community on my Substack. If your interested and want to give it a read, here's the link: https://open.substack.com/pub/theredstagletter/p/one-bag-down?r=1cyd9f&utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=web
Quick question, how do you typically transport/dispose of the trash you find?
I have been just cleaning up in my neighborhood, about a bag a week, which easily fits into my personal trash can and I just put it there.
I’ve seen a lot of super dirty spots that I would like to cleanup, but how do you transport the trash and where to? I could fit a few bags a week into my trash can(s), I live in an apartment, but I’m more worried about transporting it? I would be worried about a bag opening in my car and getting bugs/smell everywhere.
How do you all do it?
When me and my partner pick up we try to have two buckets/bags. One for waste and one for recycling.
Do yall do this? How dirty is too dirty for something to be recycled?
I find that 1/3 to 2/3 of the waste we pick up is recyclables. Glass bottles, cans, paper bags. Generally the only things we toss in the garbage are things that are too dirty or anything squishy.
