Is your Florida city on the dirtiest list? Ewww. I don’t want to know. Bu, we gotta know. Lawnstarter created a list of the dirtiest cities in America. Houston came in at number one. Out of the 152 cities on the list, 9 of them are in Florida. Lawnstarter compared the cities across 4 categories. Pollution, Living Conditions, Infrastructure And Consumer Satisfaction. 9 Florida cities made the list out of 152 cities across the U.S., but only 2 of them were in the top 20. Hollywood and Fort Lauderdale were the dirtiest cities in Florida, ranked at #18 and #20 in this study.

We try to respect our beaches here in Florida, but can’t always guarantee that the tourists do the same. Is Your city on this list? Are you shocked? Below are the 9 cities that made the list! Some on this list I am shocked by. I didn’t think Hollywood or St. Pete would be on here. Lawnstarter
