Sadly, i know exactly from which you speak. Many areas are "trashed" so to speak. I live here and am ashamed from time to time when i get out somewhere remote and see signs left from who knows when, showing me i live in a world that values fast food and canned beverage. Can't say enough good about the burning man crew, that cleans up after 35K + revelors and "leaves no trace".
