Whew! Houston Crowned The Dirtiest In Top 20 U.S. Cities List

Whew, chile! Roomies, you might just be living in one of America’s dirtiest cities! A recent study left the internet in shambles after it revealed a list of the top 20 dirtiest cities in the United States.

Top 20 Dirtiest Cities In America

According to The Hill, LawnStarter, a lawn care provider, assessed over 150 major United States cities. Their study centered on pollution, living conditions, infrastructure, and resident satisfaction.

Social media was shook after Houston, Texas, was crowned the dirtiest city to live in. The Hill reports that Houston ranked highest due to its major cockroach problem, high levels of pollution, and greenhouse gas emissions from large industrial plants.

Despite these assertions, some Houstonians express greater satisfaction with their city’s cleanliness compared to residents in 33 other major cities.

Completing the top five list was Newark, New Jersey, securing the second position. It dropped from its number one position as the dirtiest city.

The list proceeded with San Bernardino at number three, followed by Detroit, Michigan at number four, and Jersey City, New Jersey at number five.

Multiple cities in California, including Bakersfield, Fresno, Los Angeles and San Bernardino, were also identified among the dirtiest. San Bernardino, for the second consecutive year, had the highest number of dissatisfied residents regarding cleanliness. Furthermore, the study underscored the water challenges faced by the Southwest, which has intensified by drought and climate change. However, Las Vegas emerged as the most polluted region, securing the 19th position.
