Put Litter in Its Place

Litter Doesn't Stop Where It Drops

The County launched an anti-litter campaign this April. Look out for campaigns on County buses, trash cans and other locations. Our campaigns illustrate how litter can hit the ground and be carried by wind or rain down the nearest storm drain and into streams, where it then pollutes local waterways and the Bay.

Litter can contain bacteria and toxins that are harmful to people and wildlife, and can contaminate the food we eat. Help keep our community clean and healthy by "putting litter in its place"—a recycling bin or trash can!
