HOW CAN I HELP IN THE EFFORT TO END LITTERING?
The best way to discourage people from littering is by setting a good example:
- Don’t throw your litter on the ground;
- Pick up litter you see and dispose of it properly;
- Don’t throw any litter (including cigarette butts) out of your car;
- Check to make sure that any trash cans you own have a tight fitting lid; and
- Encourage your friends and neighbors to perform cleanups, even if it is just a once- or twice-a-month walk through your neighborhood.
Calling all joggers and walkers: Take a bag on your jog or walk and pick up litter on your favorite path or route to add to your exercise/weight loss routine.
