Defintion of Litter:
“Litter is waste disposed of in the wrong place by unlawful human action and can vary in size of incident, occurrence or items. It can occur as small items like wrappers, large collections of waste or scatterings of litter dispersed around public places outdoors. Litter can be occasioned by malicious intent, carelessness, or by accident. Litter has the potential to cause harm to human health, safety, and welfare; it harms wildlife and environmental quality on Earth. Waste abandoned in a private space is not considered litter. The American Public Works Association standardized the term litter in the mid-20th Century, to be later known as a form of solid waste — “material which, if thrown or deposited, tends to create a danger to public health, safety and welfare.” Litter is categorized into three specific components: hazardous, reusable-recyclable and non-hazardous, non-from trash-hauling vehicles, unsecured loads, or construction sites.2" Wikipedia

I have litter. Do you and what are you going to do about it?
We have a recycling center in our community where the citizens every month drop off plastics, cans, aluminum, glass, junk mail, magazines, newspapers, and cardboard.
Our home waste such as coffee grounds, vegetable peelings, egg shells are thrown in a compost bin mixed with dead leaves to decompose. The leaves that are raked and piled are thrown in the garden and plowed under to decompose. It’s better than the chemical fertilizers and it seems the plants and fruits are more productive.

    Shame folks think our world is their personal trash can.

  • Eric, the state of Pennsylvania is the worst state in the United States for litter. The statistics collected by PennDot has it that PA is 77% for litter while the rest of the states are under 25%. It’s an image for action more than anything else and I hope that our politicans in the state of PA will do more to clean up the state. A good start would be to have 5 cent deposits on cans and bottles instead of filling the landfills. Thanks for the review. BigD
