We can all agree littering can be a problem in Arizona. Here's a cool way from "Don't Trash Arizona" to report littering in our communities.
If you see someone littering from their vehicle, visit this website: https://litter.az.gov/
What you'll need:
- License plate number
- Cross streets where littering occurred
- City where littering occurred
- Type of trash
If I'm driving, I like to ask Siri to make a note and list these things in order to report later on.
What happens next:
- A note is sent to the address of registered to the driver (via license plate number) to remind them that littering is a crime, punishable by fine.
- The guilty party is also sent a small trash bag to keep in their car to use next time, instead of trashing our state.
It's a light nudge to remind folks that others are watching, and provides a solution for the next time they need to dispose of their car trash. 😉
Just curious, does that work with cigarette butts? While I don’t smoke, I can’t stand people that will toss out a cigarette butt with the embers still burning. What if there was some kind of flammable chemical on the road that nobody has noticed? That seems like a fire ready to happen, and one that can’t be controlled quickly.
Just my .02 cents worth.
Yes! I feel the same way. Most of the time, that's what I'm reporting is cigarette butts in particular. I'm pretty sure you can report just about anything.
