Debris washed into our water bodies can choke, suffocate, or disable aquatic life such as ducks, fish, turtles and birds. Some of the most common litter includes plastic bags, six-pack rings, bottles, gum, and cigarette butts.
- Properly dispose of paper, plastics and other waste by recycling them or throwing them away.
- Make sure these items don’t accidentally blow off your property or from your car.
- Sweep up litter and debris from sidewalks, driveways, and parking lots, especially around storm drains.
