This was the first I saw and hoped the other two would be as strong. Obviously the campaign leader, meticulously thought out, nice careful art direction and first-class copy. Easy 10 from me.

The art is wonderfully designed, but I have a question for everyone: Is this picture so visually interesting and stylistically "beautiful" that it distracts from the revulsion we should feel from so much waste?

I think that it's so well visually-layered that it invites study yes, but not as a piece of art, which is what I take from your observation to be the question. You can go for a walk with your eyes through the landscape of the image, and in doing so, take a trip through a proper trash heap, a smelly city junksplash. And I think *that* journey is the stretched moment where the viewer gets the full 'eurgh' feeling. To me, this doesn't beautify trash, it just collects the ugly in an interesting frame where we can take time to be disgusted in detail.
