Litter Control & Recycling

The Litter Control Department is responsible for the enforcement of the state and county environmental codes. In addition, we offer programs to assist with roadside trash cleanup and environmental education. We also assist with promoting the county recycling program.

To accomplish our job duties we follow the three E's:

  • Education
  • Enforcement
  • Eradication

We try to educate our citizens, businesses, and schoolchildren of the county and state environmental and solid waste laws. We attempt to be firm, fair, consistent and professional with our enforcement of those laws when they are broken. We realize that there will always be a need for some degree of trash cleanup so we supervise inmate and probationer trash detail programs to help eradicate the illegal dumpsites and road littering when possible.
