Litter & Illegal Dumping

What's the difference?

We think of littering as small amounts of trash that are carelessly (and illegally) dropped onto the ground. It may seem like a little bit here and there, but litter adds up fast!

Illegal Dumping, on the other hand, is when a larger amount of garbage is dumped rather than disposed of properly. Illegal dumping reduces property values and can make a community seem downright inhospitable.
