Litter


Paper wrappers, bottles, cans, pop bottles and cigarette butts

are garbage
and they do not melt away in the sun, nor evaporate.




What You Can Do
  • Adopt a Piece of Ground. Adopt a street, trail, park, small cemetery, or spot in a neighborhood, and clean up litter at least once a year. Provide tools, gloves, waste containers, and safety vests if cleaning near busy streets.

  • Report Litter Violators. Citizens may call 1-866-LITTER-1 to report the license plates of those discarding litter along the highways. The reported offender will be sent a warning ticket.
