San Francisco’s dirty, really dirty, but not as dirty as New York and Los Angeles combined, according to a new report.
In an infographic released by BusyBee, a cleaning service in NYC, San Francisco has a dirtiness index of 189.03, ranking 9th among the 40 cities included in the report. San Francisco also ranked 5th with a litter index of 210.2 — homes with trash, litter or junk on the streets or any properties within a half block.
Despite how dirty San Francisco may seem to many residents New York took the cake as No.1 in dirtiness, litter and pests index. New York scored a total of 427.9 in dirtiness, 904.2 in litter and 2,275 in pests.
Los Angeles followed NYC at No.2 with a dirtiness index of 317.8.
The report was compiled through data from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the American Housing Survey and the U.S. Census Bureau to create a metric used to determine which metropolitan areas are the dirtiest.
