Louisiana Lands Two on ‘Dirtiest Cities in America’ List
Louisiana now has the distinction of being home to two cities on the "Dirtiest Cities in America" list. Well, we could have done worse, right?
The trashiest time of the year is the winter holiday season.
Makes sense. All of the extra food, decorations, and presents begin to add up, stuffing trash bins coast to coast.
Unfortunately, not all of that extra trash finds its way into the proper receptacles.
The gang at lawnstarter.com have released their annual "Dirtiest Cities in America" list for 2023, and...well...if we're being brutally honest, Louisiana could have done much worse.
Louisiana has two cities on the "Dirtiest Cities in America" list for 2023.
Here's how lawnstarter.com compiled the list -
"We compared over 150 of the biggest U.S. cities across four categories, including pollution, living conditions, infrastructure, and consumer satisfaction.
Finally, we averaged the scores for each city across all categories. We eliminated 48 cities lacking sufficient data for a fair comparison, resulting in a final sample size of 152 cities."
Out of 150, Louisiana got two. Obviously, it would be great if we didn't have any on the list but...
Coming in at number 1 on the list of "Dirtiest Cities in America" is Houston, Texas.
The top 5 "Dirtiest Cities in America" are -
1. Houston, TX
2. Newark, NJ
3. San Bernadino, CA
4. Detroit, MI
5. Jersey City, NJ
Dang. New Jersey is trashy y'all.
OK, so what about Louisiana?

While Louisiana has one city a spot shy of the top 10, and one city just outside of the top 50, most Louisianians probably would think we'd have quite a few more cities on this list.
