These Missouri cities are named the state’s filthiest

MISSOURI ( KSNF ) — With an abundance of natural beauty, places of historical significance, awe-inspiring landmarks, and accomplished major league sports teams, Missouri has rightfully earned its nickname, the “Show-Me State.”

However, one study is showing the dirt it has on the Show-Me State, by naming two Missouri cities as some of the filthiest in America. A recent study conducted by LawnStarter names Kansas City as the dirtiest city in Missouri, with Springfield right behind them.

The study examined over 150 of the biggest cities in America to find out which are the dirtiest. The rankings are determined by publicly available data in four categories: Pollution, living conditions, infrastructure, and consumer satisfaction (or how happy residents are in each city listed). While Kansas City may be the dirtiest city in Missouri, according to the study, it’s not the most filthy in the country. Kansas City is ranked 44th and Springfield is ranked 46th — but the number one ranked, dirtiest city in the U.S. is Houston, Texas.
