"Pollution will pollinate the world in ways that we haven't even dreamed of." ― Anthony T. Hincks Solid waste management
"Just because people throw it out and don't have any use for it, doesn't mean it's garbage." ― Andy Warhol
The science of the earth's crust --to which, doubtless, will be added that of its interior whenever a man shall come up garrulous out of a well. The geological formations of the globe already noted are catalogued thus: The Primary, or lower one, consists of rocks, bones or mired mules, gas-pipes, miners' tools, antique statues minus the nose, Spanish doubloons and ancestors. The Secondary is largely made up of red worms and moles. The Tertiary comprises railway tracks, patent pavements, grass, snakes, mouldy boots, beer bottles, tomato cans, intoxicated citizens, garbage, anarchists, snap-dogs and fools." ― Ambrose Bierce

Garbage of Mind

smell, from its indecent words

"Garbage Is, always. We will die, civilization will crumble, life as we know it will cease to exist, but trash will endure, and there it was on the street, our ceaselessly erected, ceaselessly broken cenotaphs to ephemera and disconnection and unquenchable want." ― Robin Nagle, Picking Up: On the Streets and Behind the Trucks with the Sanitation Workers of New York City

"The fact that my parents did not have the where-with-all to buy toys, didn't slow me down. Sometimes at the nearby dumps or in garbage cans, I would find discarded toys that could be repaired. In some cases, my father would restore a toy, such as my pedal fire engine that he fixed and repainted. My cousin Walter and I enjoyed years of peddling around, bumping into things and pretending to put out non-existing fires. Never mind that it had been restored, for us it was as good, if not better, than new. Papa was fairly handy. He didn't always get it right, but more often than not he fixed things good enough for them to work again. He was also a reasonably good artist and painted copies of artwork done by well-known artists. For whatever reason, I never saw him do anything original, but his work did inspire me to try painting and construct things by myself. Much of the material I used came from the other side of U.S. Highway 1, or Tonnele Avenue, where the dumps were located. I didn't know it at the time, however Tonnele Avenue was named after John Tonnele, a farmer and politician in the 1800's. There were also some railroad tracks that I had to cross, but the dangers of crossing a highway or railroad tracks didn't stop me, even though there were frequent articles in the Jersey Journal of people getting hurt or killed doing exactly this. To me the dumps were a warehouse of treasures." ― Captain Hank Bracker, "Salty & Saucy Maine"

"The killers are the people who are ruining the world to line their pockets, poisoning us, burying us under garbage!" ― John Brunner, The Sheep Look Up
