Garbage was estimated using EPA data on the percentage of each state's land occupied by landfills.

Population density was examined and US Census data was used to find the number per square mile. The more people, the more the smell. Dental hygiene is especially important, so the frequency of visits to dentists was taken into account.

10 most smelly states

1. Maryland
  • Landfills: 0,026%
  • Person per sq. mile: 610

Maryland is the worst-smelling state in the United States. Not only is 0,026% of the state a waste dump, but the air here is not very pleasant.

2. California
  • Landfills: 0,015%
  • Person per sq. mile: 246,1

3. Florida
  • Landfills: 0,017%
  • Person per sq. mile: 364,6

4. Delaware
  • Landfills: 0,040%
  • Person per sq. mile: 475,1

Delaware is quite crowded. In fact, every square mile in the state is home to 475 people—all with their own smells. And, unfortunately, not all of them appreciate deodorant.

5. Massachusetts
  • Landfills: 0,021%
  • Person per sq. mile: 858

No factor alone makes Massachusetts the 5th stench state. However, mediocre air quality is greater, and many people in this state leave it less than fragrant.

6. Alabama
  • Landfills: 0,006%
  • Person per sq. mile: 95,4

The sixth smelliest state is Alabama. What makes it smell so bad? This southern state has some of the worst air quality in the country. If that's not enough, few people in the state seek dental care.

7. New Jersey
  • Landfills: 0,042%
  • Person per sq. mile: 1210,10

The tiny, densely populated state of New Jersey has a trash problem. In fact, 0,0421% of the state's land area is landfill, more than any other state in the country. By comparison, in Alaska, only 0,0001% of the land area is occupied by trash.
