A recent ABC News report shows us that the Cadillac Ranch located in Amarillo, Texas is having an issue with trash accumulation. For those who are unfamiliar, the site of 1948 to 1963 Cadillacs has been drawing visitors from across the nation since 1974.
Most recently, the attraction got a makeover, which makes this news all the more upsetting.
According to the report, visitors of the ranch are littering the site with spray paint cans and other trash, rather than simply tossing them in the two dumpsters on-site that are provided by the state. The fact that the attraction sits on private property complicates this ordeal, as technically no one else would be responsible for cleaning it up.
It’s a shame to see Cadillac Ranch being treated this way, we imagine that the late Stanley Marsh 3 would be greatly disappointed if he were here today to see the work that he created being treated so poorly. The report also touches on the possibility that visitors are confusing the littered scene as all part of a “junkyard theme.” Maybe a few signs and perhaps a few garbage cans should do the trick, but what do we know?
