Taylor Swift Fined for Trash Outside New York Home

According to NewsNation, the New York City Sanitation Department has fined Swift more than $3,000 between 2018 and 2023 for trash outside her properties in two buildings on Franklin Street in Tribeca. Swift is apparently responsible for picking up trash on the sidewalk.

The New York Post reports that the trash found outside Swift’s building has included newspapers, bottles, cardboard, napkins, wrappers, and “scattered ashtray contents.”

“She doesn’t care about leaving trash out,” a dog walker told the outlet. “I think she’s more focused on her multi-million dollar tour that’s bankrupting all her fans.”

Lawyers have reportedly reduced the fines by around $200, but Swift is expected to pay the rest. NewsNation points out that Swift has also had issues with her Rhode Island home, as neighbors have complained about fans visiting to see the house and security kicking people off her section of beach.


Swift Is Currently Performing on Her Eras Tour

Swift is currently performing shows on her Eras Tour, which kicked off in March. The singer is performing in various cities around the United States, before moving on to Mexico and South America later this year. She also has shows lined up in Asia and Europe in 2024.

This is Swift’s first tour since her Reputation Stadium Tour in 2018. Since then, the singer has released four new albums — Lover in 2019, Folklore and Evermore in 2020, and Midnights in 2022. Swift is also re-recording her first six albums.

So far, she’s released re-recorded versions of Fearless and Red. Next up is Speak Now, with Taylor’s Version set to be released on Friday, July 7.
