Thank you for your services and making a change in the world.
I did not know about that subreddit! Thanks!
The way the picture is laid out (reading top to bottom), it looks like you put the bags there 😂
I got a good laugh, because I briefly thought by your comment, you meant "now it's MY turn to leave garbage everywhere!" and then I saw the name of the sub.
You kick ass
Thank you! I’m a parks worker in a large city, and I pick up a lot of trash in my parking lots and roadways from truckers.
I'm sorry about that. I hate the drivers that do that. We aren't all like that.
BIIIIG ups my friend!!!
Thanks! Now I have to go for a walk to find a dumpster to put all this garbage in. Good excuse to get some exercise on my 34 hour break :D
Wow I can’t imagine trying to be zero waste as a trucker! Would love to see more on how you manage on the road. You’ve inspired me to clean up my surroundings on my walk today.
It's not possible, but it's providing the income for me to make it possible in the future.
Nice, I'm a trucker too. I'm always saddened by the level of trash I see at truck stops and near my home terminal at the long beach ports. I keep 2 plastic bags, from Vons or wherever, in my truck. One for recycling and 1 for other trash. Maybe takes 10 seconds out of my day to toss it when I'm fueling up? I see piles of used tires, used motor oil, piss bottles, you name it. We can blame big corporations on polluting our planet but we have a huge role to fill as well.
Just don't ever let that shit get in your sleeper or cab. Mine always goes in the side box.
it's probably piss jugs...old trucker habits never die
I probably picked up 100 piss bottles and about 25 shit bags
Thank you, I swear some people go to more effort to litter than it would take to just throw things out. It's good to see the trash level in an area go down on occasion.
Good for you man! Are those shots from West Texas by any chance?
Truck stops and other places need to provide sanitary piss bottle disposals because My Fucking God the number of full apple juice containers along roads and highways is sickening.
Almost every truck stop has a separate dumpster for every other truck right when you back in to a parking spot.
You are awesome thank you!
So awesome!! I’m happy I can be exposed to all the activism people do thru this sub!! Thank you 🙏
This is brilliant, you love to see it
Kudos and thank you!
I live on a busy road with no stoplights but a few stop signs, and they get backed up during morning+evening commutes. Not surprisingly, there are some folks that just don't give a shit and throw their trash right out the window. I go out periodically and clean up along the side of the roads- recycle what I can and trash the rest.
I get outside, get some exercise, and (I hope) make the world a slightly better place.
Lol for a second there I thought this was a joke. Like I was tired seeing other people's garbage so I left my own on the side of he road.
You’re awesome! Thanks for your hard work in and out of the cab.
This is exactly what we need right now.
It's the best kind of guerilla initiatives.
Thank you for being such a wonderful example!
My wife and I are upgrading our supplies, on our next paycheck we are ordering some pick up grabbers, and better contractors bags and were gonna make this our new hobby on the road!
I love you hunny, and I am proud of you. I would of help but I was cleaning the truck. We just bought contractor bags and we be getting some grabbing tools. We both are planning to do this as exercise at different truck stops.
You're the best 🔥🔥🔥
I couldn’t tell what I was seeing at first. Then I thought it was a body
i didn’t see the trash in the first picture and thought they were... bragging about dumping bags of trash on the side of the road? awesome job though op!
With the order of the pics I thought you were leaving waste, and then I read the caption lol. Your awesome props!
incredible human being
Wow such a big difference from the top pic to the bottom, especially when you zoom in. It's just sprinkled trash everywhere but you did an emaculate job! The world thanks you! 🙏
Good job!!!! Thank you!
Blessings my friend 🙏
thank you! this is amazing!
After is on the bottom
Great action men! Thank you 💪
You are an amazing person
Thank you for being so considerate!
I’m tempted to do this too. It’s like ever since Covid our transit department is non existent. Like they can’t possible drive separately and wear masks while outside picking up the trash.
Makes me sick all the trash and now graffiti. It’s ridiculous!!
I worked for this company not to long ago sherry was my dispatcher
She's payroll now. She's mean lol
Love you bro. Big kisses.
My man! I’m inspired, gonna go r/detrash
Dude what's wrong with the front of your truck
Fisheye effect from the wise angle lens on my phone
I did this too, just got sick of seeing litter on the along the road as I went for walks. So I decided to pick it up.
Is your hood not strapped down on one side?

Your behavior should provoke the fomo feeling for all of us, so that we will behave like you and in the end there is no garbage left at all.
First thought was definitely, “so instead of everywhere he just put all his trash in one spot on the road...”. Good work man, it looks good!
Based on the position of the sun, you did that shit pretty fast too
Hell yeah man, need more people just like you!
I thought this was another pissed off trucker on /r/truckers that had to wait an entire day to load or unload his truck.
34 hours for me to get unloaded actually. I'm just relaxing.
Your driver side windshield post is melting.
This is awesome!!! 🙌
I'm glad OP put all that trash in one place instead of all over the road. At least it is organized now.
You killed the litterers and put their corpses in bags and left them by the side of the road for irony purposes?
Dispatch: "Huh... you *practicin'* for your NEW JOB as a GARBAGE MAN? Good fer you, I'll let the broker know of your holy shenanigans".
Eh, I wouldn't mind a job as a garbage man to be honest.
It looks like you murdered the litterer, covered the body with trash bags, and left him by the side of the road!
I plead the fifth.
One time I was picking up trash on the side of the road a cop came up assumed I was dumping and gave me a ticket
Fight that shit
Bravo!! Well Done and Thank You!!
Good job , buddy
Thank you for your service!! I hope you have a great day :)
You know you just quoted hitler right? Like quite literally he said “be the change you want to see in the world” just saying...
No he didn't. It's a shortening of a quote from Ghandi.
"We but mirror the world. All the tendencies present in the outer world are to be found in the world of our body. If we could change ourselves, the tendencies in the world would also change. As a man changes his own nature, so does the attitude of the world change towards him. This is the divine mystery supreme. A wonderful thing it is and the source of our happiness. We need not wait to see what others do.”
That is awesome I did the same on the disc golf course this week. Must have been animals because the entire trash can contents were everywhere
Plot twist. They just posted them littering in reverse
You are awesome!!!! Thank you for setting the example! Thank you for helping the planet! 🌎
You are incredible Thank you for leading by example! I hope this is shared and others begin to make the change of not leaving their litter behind for others to pick up!
This warms my heart OP thank you for doing your part in making this world a better place, you are a saint and a scholar.
thank you. its greatly appreciated ❤️
You rock thank you so much !!
THANK YOU KIND FELLOW HUMAN!!!
Wow thank you! That's amazing! Legit hero
I hope you receive many blessings
What’s your take on piss jugs? Why not just dump them out?
Thanks for doing this!!!!! I can only imagine how much you see along the roads
Yes! Your last sentence resonates with me so much.
I go for walks around my neighborhood and the amount of trash I saw yesterday was making me anxious, especially the styrofoam next to the stormwater drain. When I got home, I put on some gloves, got my grabber and plastic bags and out I went! Just took 20 mins to clean up my street.
As a citizen of the world, THANK YOU!!!!!!!! We need more people like you
Tremendous! Lots of Love to You.
My dad is a cross country truck driver and does the same thing. Truckers are saints.
Citizen of the year award! 🥇
Thank you! <3
Thank you so much for doing this 🙏
I did this once, outside Safeway Distribution hub in Spokane. Next week, it was back to normal. Disheartening.
You still did your best.
Thank you kind human!!!
i love this
I love this so much! If we could all just do our part, imagine what a difference it could make!
You sir, encompass the beauty that men try to achieve.
Wow, the cleaning job is done very well!
Thanks. I love you for this. Truckers are still a big contributor to litter and cleaning up your rest stops helps the reputation a lot. Piss jugs are the worst.
I thought this was a joke post where you killed the other truck drivers for littering and left them in the side of the road
This should be mandatory for all American citizens, like registering for the draft.
But, if someone can't make a profit from it, it'll never happen. Capitalism 22.
Getting up and moving is good for the bowels after sitting for so long. Good for you!
I love you for doing this
I am a tour bus driver on Pikes Peak and do the same at all our rest stops
Thanks for making the world a nicer place!!
As a none truck driver, i am tired as this too.
Thank you for all that you do! I don’t think truckers get the recognition they deserve. You guys are literally what keep the world running smoothly.
Thanks. I don't really need much recognition personally. The money is what I'm here for. It's a job, I love the job and I love the pay. That's good enough for me. If I wanted recognition I probably wouldn't have the personality type for being a trucker.
I just drove from SLC to Denver and was so disgusted by seeing so much trash the entire way!! So disappointing to think that so many people have no problem littering :/
Have you noticed more or less trash depending on state?
Actually yes. The northeast in general is the worst because there are so few facilities for truck drivers.
When we are treated like less than human, we tend to act that way as well.
I was delivering a load in the Boston, Mass area and had to wait 24 hours to get unloaded....when my wife and so asked if they had a restroom we could use, they said
and I quote "we have restrooms, just not for you". Oh and none of the local stores we could walk to had public restrooms either.
So we had no choice but to hold in our bodily functions for 24 full hours or to shit in a bag.
Im not proud of it but I personally took a piss right on the dock because I was so angry they wouldn't let my wife inside to use the restroom.
So when we get treated like animals, we act like animals.
I understand the post but I laughed because it looks like you're saying that you're upset that you're NOT the one leaving garbage, so you decided to add your own garbage out of principle.
We are responsible citizens who try to minimize our overall environmental impact.
