Dear readers,

We would like to put together a photo essay of the role of trash in the Occupy movement, from protesters being called “dirty hippies,” to the greywater system protesters set up before Zuccotti park was evicted. If you have images you own the copyright to or you have from media commons, please send to

Thank you.
