Follow these tips to keep trash out of our waterbodies:
Reduce the amount of trash you create.
Put your trash where it belongs - always put trash in a trash can, recyclables in a recycling bin, and green waste in your household’s yard waste bin.
Never dump any materials or pour anything down a storm drain.
Secure trash and loads you are hauling with a tarp, and don’t let trash blow out of your car windows or truck bed.
Always pick up after your pet - seal the waste in a pet waste bag and throw it in the trash.
