This Oklahoma Town is Ranked in the Top 10 Trashiest Cities in the Nation
It's not a top 10 list you really want to be on that's for sure. A recent study was conducted to discover the trashiest towns in the Nation. Sadly there's a city in Oklahoma that's listed in the top 10 trashiest towns.
The study used several different factors and criteria in determining and ranking various U.S. cities and towns' degree of trashiness. Things like pollution, living conditions, infrastructure, and consumer satisfaction.
