Anything that gets in the path of a rain drop becomes storm water pollution.

That includes litter.

Every year tons of litter and other debris is removed from creeks in Mecklenburg County by volunteers.

Never throw anything down storm drains or out of car windows.

Remember to keep truck loads covered to avoid accidental littering.
