Working Toward a Litter-Free County

The Montgomery County Police Department is once again supporting the Alice Ferguson Foundation and Metropolitan Washington Council of Government’s Litter Enforcement initiative, which runs through May 7. During this time MCP officers, along with many other local law enforcement agencies, will be particularly vigilant in identifying litter violations and enforcing the applicable criminal, traffic and civil statutes.

All those who live, work and travel through Montgomery County are reminded that throwing litteror dumping on any public highway or property (other than personal property) without the owner’s permission is illegal. Anti-littering and dumping laws can be found in Maryland State law, Maryland Motor Vehicle law, and the Montgomery County Code.

The Montgomery County Police Department encourages the public to report violations of these laws by calling the police non-emergency number at 301-279-8000.
