September 18-22, 2023 is National Pollution Prevention Week. Pollution Prevention is an effective way to protect our environment and economy by eliminating pollution at its source before it is generated.

Stop by City Hall this week to pick up a complimentary reusable, biodegradable vehicle litter bag, a pet waste baggie dispenser, and activity booklets.

One form of pollution, which is prevalent, is littering. Littering is more than just a blight on our natural environment. It impacts our quality of life and enjoyment of our natural and built landscapes; it is costly to clean up and litter eventually ends up in our waterways where it impacts water quality for both humans and wildlife. Litter may occur either intentionally or accidentally, so make a commitment this week to help prevent pollution by taking a small step in everyday behavior. Don’t throw trash on the ground or out of your vehicle. Pick up litter and place it where it belongs – in the trash can!  Keep trash dumpster lids closed to prevent wind-blown trash from reaching our drainages and streets. City personnel have noticed large items such as patio furniture cushions in drainages from wind storms, so make sure yard items that might be affected by our more frequently occurring wind storms are secure.  Remember, littering is against City Code; you can be fined for littering. It is also against City Code to illegally dump any type of trash, electronics, tires, or other items along the roadways, in drainages, or stormwater detention facilities.
