Top Definition
Similar to carbon offset, trash offsetting is the act of voluntarily picking up and disposing of trash/litter from the street, in order that at some later stage one can drop one's own with a clear conscience.
If done responsibly the concept often eliminates the inconvenience of having to find an appropriate receptacle for items of waste, while also having a net gain for the environment.

"Hell yeah I can, I picked up three cans today."
"Trash offsetting huh?"
