Where’s the Trash? is a website that provides an interactive map for users to navigate and view all the New York’s Department of Sanitation’s [DSNY] public trash bins.

In “By Borough”, users can can click on the borough of their choice and only view points corresponding to the borough. Users can also find trash bins near them by clicking the geolocation icon on the map.

The 2 main datasets I use in this project are from NYC Open Data:
