A lot of people’s garbage is another man’s, er, art.
An artist in New York City scours the streets looking for dropped metrocards, gum wrappers, coffee cups, etc. until he creates the perfect mixture. He then encases the rubbish in a glass cube that you can purchase NYC garbage over the internet.
Highlights include garbage from the Republican National Convention!
You can also see where NYC garbage has been exported to in cube form on his map.
