What Causes Litter?

Litter happens intentionally and unintentionally. Intentional littering includes motorists discarding their waste out of the window, pedestrians throwing their trash on the street or sidewalks, or people visiting the lake and leaving their trash behind.

Unintentional litter might come from uncovered loads that can easily be blown out of vehicles. Household rubbish and uncontrolled building waste can become litter if not secured by a proper cover, such as an overfilled trash can that is unable to close ahead of trash collection days.
