Best Place to Dump Snow

The harbor

The harbor is a dumping ground for the uncontained remains of Baltimore’s days. Trash, sewage, detritus of all kinds—if it’s lying around on the ground, it’s likely to end up in the harbor after the next rain storm. It’s an inexorable, barely managed process. But it’s another story when it snows. In the aftermath of this winter’s historic blizzards, the city went into a harbor-dumping frenzy. Why put off until tomorrow, when the melting snow will carry off all that crap to the Patapsco, what you can do today by simply scooping it all up into massive trucks and dumping it in the harbor anon? It was a sight to be seen: a seemingly endless line of dump trucks dropping their loads, which then floated off as little melting icebergs, packed with bottles, dog poop, and crack vials. Now that’s waste management.
