Why do people litter?

This page last updated
April 3, 2013

The Florida Department of Transportation spends about $10 million annually to clean up roadside trash. Local governments spend thousands to keep litter off miles of locally-maintained roads.
Litter is misplaced solid waste - blown by wind and traffic and carried by water. It travels until trapped by a curb, building or fence. Once litter has accumulated, it invites people to add more.
