Man Hoards His Garbage For Whole Year

LOS ANGELES (Wireless Flash - FlashNews) – One man in Los Angeles is causing a stink and totally trashing his house.

Dave Chameides, who’s known as “Sustainable Dave,” is conducting a filthy experiment: To store all of the garbage he produces in one year in order to show how much environmental waste people produce.

Chameides says, “People say that what I’m doing is extreme or crazy, and I agree. But I think it’s crazier to think a bucket of garbage magically disappears without hurting the world.”

So far, Chameides has been saving his garbage in his basement for 194 days, documenting everything he trashes on his blog

He even takes a suitcase with him wherever he goes, saving all his trash so he can bring it back home and add it to his growing garbage collection.

Despite the pile-up, Chameides claims that his house doesn’t smell unless, as he puts it, “You put your nose right in the trash.”
