I Love Trash" is Oscar the Grouch's signature song.
In a Season 29 episode Oscar sang "Grouches Love Trash" a variation of this song to his niece Irvine. In episode 3891 his old friend Felix the Grouch sang a variation called "I Love Cleaning" while Oscar sang I Love Trash. Yet another variation occurs when Oscar's trash can was grown to a larger size and the lyrics were adjusted to accomodate (a clip can be seen in Sesame Street All-Star 25th Birthday: Stars and Street Forever!).
A brief portion of the song was also sung by a group of socks in Sesame Street 4-D Movie Magic, during Oscar's imagination sequence where Sesame Street is turned into a vast garbage dump.
