Cleaning Spingfield Donuts

If I were you, I'd try it again, but probably just a coincidence.

    When I first saw the title first thing I thought of was no one wants a dirty donut. But that's awesome if it happens again keep us posted

    haha I don't want get anyone's hopes up but I def. got a donut twice from Lisa cleaning debris up last week but never collected til the next day bc I forgot. Maybe odds increase as you expand farther in land space? Just something i noticed. So i figure I'd ask

    Interesting. I'd estimate I got something from 5-6 donuts total from debris (no more left). Never left it overnight, though...

    I'm thinking its just a coincidence. I left Lisa to clean debris for two weeks earlier this year (couldn't log in) and no doughnut when I collected.

    I seem to recall that the very first time the tutorial has you clean up trash, you find a donut. From then on out you will get donuts occasionally from cleaning up trash.

    I occasionally see towns where they keep the trash to use for decorations. Either they don't know they can get donuts, or they don't need them.

    I have been expanding my town lately and twice i left lisa cleaning town (6 second task) overnight by mistake and both times i tapped her I got a donut along with $ n xp. I have never gotten one before the months I have been playing. Anyone else have this happen and just a coincidence or what?

    It's not a coincidence, there is a small chance that "clean up Springfield" pays out a donut. The percentage chance I think is buried in the game guide but I think it's roughly between 1-5%. I want to say I got about 5 donuts randomly from cleaning up all the garbage after purchasing all the land

    It's random, you got very lucky to have back to back donut finds.

    I think if they do know about it then they probably don't want to take their chances or luke you said likes them for decorations

    I hadn't gotten any, but then I got two in a row. I figured it was pretty lucky.

    I have been using a good bit of the debris to decorate around Cletus's farm, but wonder if there might be a donut in it. I'm not a single donut away from anything, so I'm not tempted to clear it... yet.

    I have never received any donuts for cleaning up. :o( And I have quite a bit land unlocked and only kept a few debris as decor...

    Never mind. The luck was good while it lasted.
