What is Litter?

Litter is any unwanted waste that has not been disposed of properly and is left on the pavement, school campus, field, beach, park, or another public place. Litter is untidy and unsightly and can affect people’s view on the value and safety of our community. Litter can be as small as a tiny candy wrapper to dumping a mattress on the side of the street. Other common types of litter include cigarette butts, gum, unauthorized stickers, pet waste, flyers and beverage containers.
