The Litter Control & Beautification Program of Monroe County Open Records Information
We need YOUR help to keep our community clean.
The Litter Control & Beautification Program of Monroe County is organizing a volunteer team to respond to local litter problems - including illegal dumping. Volunteers are asked to keep an eye on local roadways and report visible problems as they occur. If possible, personal identification found in litter or dumping should be called into their office at (570) 420-3525 for follow-up. The offender will get a letter from their office detailing the complaint and the litter laws. Supplies (bags, signs, gloves, safety equipment) will be available through the Litter Control Office. Any found or filled litter bags will be picked up by Litter Control Staff. If there is a great deal of trash or furniture, they will need the cooperation of local volunteers and municipal officials to pick up and dispose of the items.
