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!).

Drove by this bag for five days and finally said that’s it! In the trash you go.
Second pile from abandoned camp cleanup.

Our church got 15 people together for an MLK Day litter pick. In two hours we cleaned 420 pounds (what’s in the truck), two shopping carts, and a wheel with tire. This is my truck filled and ready to go to the dump.
Hi! Someone tagged this sub in a post on r/declutter and I ended up rolling through a bunch of posts.
I am wondering, what tips would you have for someone brand new to this? Specific garbage bags, how to dispose, staying sanitary, etc. anything you can think of!
I’m in Utah County, UT, so if any Utahns have location suggestions, that would be great as well. Utah lake is the main spot coming to mind, especially since I visit often for photography and know for a fact it’s quite trashed. :/
I’m also a full-time student, and limited on extra free time, so any tips on making a quick trip on a weekday morning sort of thing would also be great :)
Thanks in advance!!! 😊
