San Francisco Bay Area lawmakers Rep. Jackie Speier and North Coast Congressman Jared Huffman hand-delivered a bin that read “Trump Trash” to the White House on January 8.

According to a CBS SF Bay Area report, the two representative and other volunteers, fed up with the impacts of the partial government shutdown, collected the garbage from national parks in the Bay Area. The lawmakers then delivered the trash to the White House before President Donald Trump addressed the nation on Tuesday.

Since the partial shutdown began, national parks across the country have been inundated with garbage and even human waste, as there are few rangers and staffers on the job to remove the filth.
