Report a Litterer
Did you see that? That man threw a cigarette out the car window!
So what can you do about it? You can report littering through the Keep Montgomery County Beautiful's (KMCB) Report a Litterer program. To file your report online, please complete the Report a Litterer Form.
This report allows citizens to turn in anyone they observe tossing things out of their vehicle or accidentally littering from an uncovered load. It's simple. All you need to do is write down a few things about the incident.
You will need the license plate number (Ohio plates only), the make of the vehicle, the time of day, the location, the date, who tossed the trash (driver or passenger), and the item littered. After you've collected the appropriate information, you can submit it via the form below. Please be as accurate and honest when submitting information about the littering incident you observed.
When KMCB receives the information it is compared to Ohio's vehicle registration database and an exact match is located. A letter is mailed to the litterer to remind them to put their trash where it belongs!
- If I see the person pull into a gas station or store, should I say something to them about their littering?
Never confront another driver about littering. This could put you in a dangerous situation.
- How long does it take for the litterer to get the letter?
The report typically takes 2 to 4 weeks to process.
- Can the litterer find out who turned them in?
Your submission is strictly confidential. The litterer will not be able to find out who submitted his or her name.
- Will the litterer get a ticket?
No. The litterer will not receive a ticket. Law enforcement officials are the only people authorized to enforce local and state laws about littering and dumping.
- What will the litterer get in the mail?
After the report is processed, the litterer will receive a letter in the mail reminding him/her about the incident, along with information about state littering laws.
