Our Imprompu Inaugural Trashspotting Journey

While walking through Brooklyn Heights on a break from studying for finals, Cardo-Jimframe Steve and I happened upon an interesting trash display, so we took a picture and performed some rudimentary trash-analysis. Please forgive the small camera phone picture; as this was not a planned expedition our Jimframe did not have the proper equipment with him.

In the center of the picture is a stack of law textbooks neatly tied up in a bundle. We could only see what two of the books were; one was called Legal Methods and the other was something to do with Contract Law. These are both first year law courses. No first year law student (or a 1L, as we call them) would throw out books without making an effort to sell them back, either through the school bookstore or online. Book-buying week started Monday, coinciding with finals, but a 1L has not had time to complete exams yet, so he would still need at least some of these books. A more likely scenario is that these are the old books of a graduating student who realized that these books are just cluttering up his apartment, and he is unable to sell them, being three years out of date, so he has left them on the curb. As to the old vacuum being thrown out, there are too many possible reasons, and the only thing we can say at this point is that someone needs a new vacuum. At another residence, we spotted an empty 24-waffle Eggo box being thrown out, but unfortunately we did not get a picture. Cardo Steve thinks that this is too many waffles and that nobody would ever need 24 waffles; I vehemently disagree and take the position that one can never have too many waffles. We would appreciate any comments on the matter.

An innocent baby in a devil's costume; a Clear Devil

The harm that I will do will not actually be harm but will evoke clarity. I am a Clear Devil.

We are official, folks

As you can see by our addition of the official Trashspotting logo, our humble league has been recognized by the Achewood Master Council as an official Trashspotting organization. As per the manifesto, we have organized ourselves into a hierarchichal rank system, with myself as Boodge and Steve as Cardo-Jimframe. We also have a new member who will soon be joining us as a Clear Devil. As Steve and I are law students with final exams fast approaching, we will not be organizing any expeditions for a few weeks, but our Clear Devil has indicated that he may venture on a few solo adventures in this timeframe. Again, if you are interested in joining our illustrious organization, please contact me.

Greetings and salutations, my friends and fellow trashspotters


To analyze the curbside recycling and general refuse of a household, especially with a long-term view.

Welcome to the official site of the Brooklyn Trashspotter's League, the premier trashspotting league in Brooklyn. At the resent time, the executive council of the league consists of myself, Ethan W., and my friend and associate, Steve Squelch. We also happen to be the only members, but we are a fledgling group, and hope to soon add more to our ranks. If you are interested, please contact me at the email address in my profile. In addition to our normal trashspotting activities, Steve and I feel that, being law students, we may be able to lend something of our legal expertise as not-quite-lawyers to other trashspotting clubs as the need may arise.
