$500 fine possible for littering
According to current Alabama law, persons can be cited for violating
the roadside litter statute and fined $500 through the issuance of a tick-et
by a law enforcement officer.
Persons who discard their household waste illegally can be prosecut-ed
under a separate criminal littering statute. A case of criminal litter-ing
may proceed against a person -- even if the law enforcement author-ities
do not witness the littering -- simply based on the presence of
paper that bears the person's name.
Alabama law allows litter enforcement officers to prosecute those
persons who discard their waste illegally by finding the person's name
on papers included in the waste. The person has the opportunity to offer
a defense, of course, but the presence of their name in the litter makes
it easier to get a conviction.
Don't throw out trash, and don't dump trash on the side of the road!
Take pride in Clarke County and Keep It Clean.
