Trash in Springfield

    I believe folks use it for various effects. I find it unsightly personally but some don't and use it extensively.

    It's all in how you like your Springfield to look!

    Some people use it for extra decoration. e.g. nuclear waste lying around the power plant.

    eventually it becomes too much and most people just clean it up. Very rarely you will get a donut for cleaning up the waste.

    I have a real OCD issue with that trash and even though I buy the land because I have plans for it, I'm also buying it because I just want to clean it all up.

    I'm not fond of nuclear power in real life, so in my Springfield, the waste needs to go.

    I use it to decorate around my hillbilly compound and a bit by power plant, but that's it. Since the update I have removed some of it because you can see through the trees and it was a bit too much. It's pretty much a matter of personal taste.

    Thanks everyone! I thought perhaps I was missing something. I'm in the OCD camp and have Lisa clean it up as soon as I buy an expansion.

    I actually think it looks messy to me so the moment I buy the land, (I make sure either Lisa or Homer are free) I clean it up cause I hate the look of it lol

    A number of people aren't cleaning it up because you won't ever be able to get it back, and they think they might use it later on. I've seen quite a few cities where they've got all the trash/waste organized in a block, saving it for later.

    I've cleaned most of it, but I am keeping some nuclear waste by the graveyard for the zombies.

    I keep a couple piles of debris around the UFO wreckage and those cylinders that look like propane tanks around Cletus's yard. and of course some nuclear waste around the yard or leaking behind trash cans. beyond that it gets cleaned right away.

    I put the radioactive waste in the power plant parking lot and a bunch of other stuff around Nelson and Cletus.

    I believe some folks are "hoarding" the trash because they believe that performing the "Clean Up Springfield" task several times in a row will result in a higher yield of those dirty donuts you rarely find. I have a neighbor who appears to have saved *every*bit* of his trash. It's lined up neatly and categorized. Kinda strange, but whatever floats your boat! :)

    The white barrels are my sheep for the farm.

    I have my reindeer eating some of the green stuff.

    I want to clean the rest, but it's really hard to control what Lisa and Homer get. I have waited until they were right near what I wanted gone, and even built a road leading them to it, and they still turned around and walked away and took my sheep. So, I have to leave it. I put it near the plant behind a roadblock.
    It would be nice if our characters would respect a fence.

    I hae gotten about 4 donuts cleaning up. I always clean up the trash. Not because I may get a donut but because I don't like the way it looks.

    I have them around my farm and recently put Nelsons house by the farm and surrounded that as well. I was going to clean it up for a change but kind of liked it when we got the Christmas update and just how much the colors stand out against the snow :D .

    One man's trash, is another's art(?) Toxic Love anyone?

    My thanks to players Roonil, and Nnhoang who's towns are inspiration for this piece. Not because they are trashy, quite the opposite, because of their clever use of trash.

    Note, too, that I dug through the trash of posts to find an appropriate place to post. Or is that posts of trash?
