Adopt-a-Road Program

DID YOU KNOW???
According to Ohio law, litter is defined as any debris that is thrown or dropped by a person on public property, that is not privately owned by the individual.  This law also includes state waterways.

WHO ENFORCES OHIO'S LITTER LAWS?

All litter enforcement officers within their jurisdiction can enforce the state's gerneral litter law.

If you have a question about litter law enforcement, contact your local sheriff, health or code enforcement departments or the county nuisance inspector.
On a state level one can contact the Ohio Department of Natural Resources, the Ohio Environment Agency or the Ohio State Highway Patrol.

REMEMBER, CARELESSNESS IS NOT AN EXCUSE!
