    The people who deal with our trash are unsung heroes of society, keeping the world tidy for not a lot of praise or appreciation.

    Redditor u/motordemon gave them the mic and asked, "Garbage collectors of Reddit, what do people do with their trash that frustrates you the most?"

    1. "Liquids."

    2. "Cat litter."

    3. "Needles."


    4. "Bleach."

    5. "Rainwater."

    6. "Rotting fish."

    7. "Impatient drivers."

    8. "Loose diapers."

    9. "Loose/unbagged poop."

    10. "Household garbage."
