Litterbug Reporting:  Lynn Cox, 390-3974

Washington County citizens are asked to report litterbugs by calling the Police Department 662-378-1515.  When they see a person littering, they are to report the license plate number, type of car, location and date of incident, and what was thrown out of the car or what flew out of the back of pickup trucks.  A letter will be sent to the litterbug telling them they were seen littering and if caught in the future, they can be fined up to $250 for littering. Police and Sheriff’s departments have been asked to ticket for littering.
