One man's trash is another man's trash.

The Periodic Table of NYC Trash is a poster created by Molly Young and Teddy Blanks.

The poster features a tabular array of garbage commonly found on the streets of New York City, the greatest city on earth. The table is rigorously constructed to illustrate the properties and affinities of our beloved local waste.

All items photographed in New York City.

It's a trashy, trashy poster.

Just like the real periodic table, this poster features 118 naturally-occuring elements. The elements are organized by category: Apparel, Beverage, Food, Hygiene, Household, Lifestyle, Municipal, Packing, and Vices.

Funds will be used for printing. Each poster is a beautiful offset print on 110# white matte paper. Ready to be framed.

Each $40 pledge receives one poster. 

"Ingenious! ... in a trashy way, of course." – Will Shortz
