24 seconds: I used data science to organize the demographics of trash in New York City over the last 30 years. Using retrospective data, Python, and Anaconda, I cleaned the data, organized it chronologically, and produced graphs. I used "missingno" and Matplotlib to visualize the data. There were around 23,290 records and eleven fields, but out of the floats, I used the “RefuseTonsCollected.”
