New Orleans residents host 'Trash Parade' after no trash pickup for nearly 3 weeks
NEW ORLEANS - Residents walked the streets, holding smelly garbage the city has neglected to pick up since Hurricane Ida.
Protesters even fashioned outfits made of single-use items, like garbage bags and aluminum cans for their walk through the rainy streets.
The Trash Parade, a protest/Carnival-style satire of the city’s garbage removal crisis, takes place in the pouring rain. Heading from the Marigny to City Hall. #trashparade ?@NOLAnews? pic.twitter.com/iSExEA6uQq— Doug MacCash (@dougmaccash) September 18, 2021
