Taylor Swift faces over $3K in fines after racking up 32 tickets from NYC’s Sanitation Department for ‘improperly disposing of garbage’ outside home
Taylor Swift appears to be known ‘All Too Well’ by New York City’s Sanitation Department.
The singer, 33, is reportedly facing over $3K in fines and has received a staggering 32 tickets for infractions over trash outside her home, as per the New York Post.
The home in question is her townhouse on Franklin Street in Tribeca, a high-end neighborhood in Manhattan, which she purchased in 2017 for $18 million.
Swift is responsible for maintaining the sidewalk in front of her property, but has been cited for ‘failing to clean the area in front of her building, having a dirty sidewalk, and improperly disposing of garbage.’
According to the summonses the garbage includes ‘piles of newspapers, bottles and cardboard; napkins and wrappers; and “scattered ashtray contents” and a cigarette carton.’

Swift purchased the townhouse and turned it into private entrance for her penthouse next door, where she owns three units.
Swift’s lawyers have reportedly disputed some of the fines, getting $200 reversed on appeal.
The fines are said to have been given to Taylor between January 2018 and January 2023.
The number of the sanitation tickets is reportedly the highest of any buildings on the block, promoting some fans to speculate that their idol is being unfairly ‘targeted.’
Meanwhile one dog walker in the area told the publication, ‘She doesn’t care about leaving trash out’ adding that Swift appears to be more focused ‘on her multi-million dollar tour.’
While another fan defended the Grammy winner and blamed fans and paparazzi for the garbage.
‘It’s probably the fans waiting for her and smoking while they’re bored,’ Christine O’Connor told The Post, adding, ‘She doesn’t even smoke!’
Meanwhile her former Cornelia St. landlord, David Aldea, praised her for being a ‘perfect tenant’ and had only positive things to say about the star.

Though she faces thousands in fines, paying the Sanitation Department probably won’t be a struggle for Swift, whose Eras world tour is on track to gross more than $1 billion.
As per Fortune, this is a feat that ‘no artist has ever hit.’
The Blank Space hitmaker is reportedly bringing in ticket sales of more than $13 million a night, making her the ‘the top-grossing artist in the world.’
She most recently performed a concert in Cincinnati over the weekend.
Swift took to Twitter and Instagram to share snaps from the weekend shows, expressing her love for The Queen City.
‘Cincinnati I couldn’t love you more. Had the best two nights with you!!’ Swift shared in her post.
‘See you soon Kansas City, meanwhile I’ll be counting down the minutes til Speak Now (my version) comes out July 7th WHICH IS VERY SOON,’ Swift concluded.
Swift kicked off the Eras tour in March, her first tour since 2018, which celebrates all of her previous albums.

The rotating set list also features two surprise songs, with the singer addressing her unusual set list during her stop in Arlington, Texas.
‘One thing we said about the Eras Tour: “You think you can just go online, you think you can just scroll and know the setlist?”‘ Swift said.
‘You think you can just come prepared with little flashcards [that list the song order and my outfits]?’ Let it be said about the Eras Tour, we’re tricksy. That’s what we are [and] we enjoy a good, healthy setlist hijinks,’ Swift joked.
The tour continues with two shows at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium on July 7 and 8.
