Have you seen someone throw litter out of their car?
Reporting a litterbug is easy and can be done by phone or online. Just provide the tag number, date, time, location and a brief description of what type of littering occurred (i.e., cigarette butt, fast food wrapper, construction material, etc.) and we'll take it from there.
