Where New York City's Poop Goes

Stashed in: Awesome, New York, Scatology

To save this post, select a stash from drop-down menu or type in a new one:

These twin towers are locally known as the "Shit Tits".

That's... Lovely.

Poop jokes aside, without facilities like Newtown Creek our waterways would be horrible. The Newtown Creek plant and the people who man it manage to turn millions of peoples' waste back into into clean, environmentally safe water. They don't even mind it! What theydo mind though is litter.

A small piece of trash that sneaks by the facility's defenses can easily break the whole, complex system. When a machine breaks it can costs thousands, if not millions, of dollars. So think twice about what you throw down to toilet—and don't litter in the street. Somebody has to deal with that shit.
