It is illegal to discard litter on public or private property or in the water. The crime is a misdemeanor if the amount of dumping is greater than a cubic foot but less than a cubic yard in volume. It is a gross misdemeanor if the amount of the litter is more than a cubic yard. Sukert said in addition to a fine and/or jail sentence, litter law violators must pay a litter cleanup restitution payment twice the actual cost of the cleanup or $50 per cubic foot of litter, whichever is more. The court also may order the person to pick up and remove the litter.
