You've probably seen this poster in the subway: "Trash contributed to 563 track fires in 2013," it reads, "resulting in over 7,200 train delays."

According to a new subway "trash tracker," brought to you by WNYC's data news team, the dirtiest station in the city is the 138th Street stop on the 4/5 line. Over the 12 months ending in June 2014, the Bronx station was cleaned exactly zero times.

That's 17 fewer times than the MTA's target number of cleanings per year. The MTA aims to dispatch a crew to clean the tracks at each underground station every three weeks.

Stations that fared marginally better, with one cleaning, include:

►Hunters Point Avenue

►Montrose Avenue

►Court Street (N/R)

►Queensbridge (21st Street)

►Lexington Avenue - 63rd Street (F)

►21st Street (G)

►67th Avenue

►Greenpoint Avenue

►Houston Street

►Nassau Avenue

►116th Street (1)

►Queens Plaza 

►Franklin Avenue (A/C)

►Carroll Street

►181st Street (A)

The Upper East Side can brag about having the cleanest station in the city; the 59th Street (4/5/6) station was cleaned 21 times over the 12-month period.

Data for WNYC's trash tracker comes from a city comptroller's report released in May.
