Reducing Litterbug waste…

If watching drivers throw trash out of their car windows bothers you as much as me…we know can do something about it.  Recently I stumbled upon a great website for reporting litterbugs and spreading the word.  LitterButt.com provides data fields for car tag numbers, types of trash discarded, etc. and notification is sent to the driver’s State followed by a letter sent to the driver alerting him/her about their violation.  Although no fines are currently levied the letter serves as a warning and, hopefully, makes someone think twice the next time before throwing trash or cigarette butts out their window.

LitterButt.com currently has 2,736 members, 71,094 litter reports and only 3 States which send letters, TX, PA and NC.  They have kindly prepared a letter template for your State’s governor to encourage them to join the States already sending notices.  The more letters sent, the better the chances of cleaning up your State.

Check out their website for bumper stickers, magnets, license plate holders and widgets to get this clean-up a priority!
