New Law Reported a Success


Author(s):
Abstract:
It costs North Carolina approximately $2.5 million to cleaning up litter in the state every year. As a consequence, the NC General Assembly raised the maximum fine for littering from $50 to $200; however, the littering has not ceased. North Carolina is now watching the success of a system implemented in Oregon which outright prohibits any cans with pull-tabs.
