Town of Many cracks down on litter

“The Town of Many has a serious litter problem, and we are going to enforce the litter laws rigidly to clean up our town,” says Many Mayor Ken Freeman.

“We have a great town here, but when people drive through Many or visit our town, the large amounts of litter create a negative impression, and we must correct that to make Many a cleaner place for our citizens and visitors,” the mayor continued.

A Litter Ordinance is now in place for Many, and Freeman says it will be strongly enforced. Freeman has appointed a litter officer who will actively monitor the community and issue citations and fines whenever applicable.

The Litter Ordinance pertains to any waste material: garbage, food wrappers, paper, cans, bottles, cigarette butts, or discarded debris. Intentional disposal of waste material, except in approved locations or containers, will be considered a violation of the Town Litter Ordinance.
