Littering Problems Continue


With increasing amounts of littering on the state’s highways and particularly the Missouri River, North Dakota officials are making an effort to broaden the public’s perception of littering problems.

Signs are posted along several areas of the Missouri River and access points clarifying regulations that glass containers are prohibited in areas of the river shoreline and sandbars. Recreationists are also reminded to take their garbage with them when leaving the river.

Todd Sando, state engineer, said littering problems have remained constant, and broken glass creates safety hazards on the river’s beaches and shorelines.

Fines for littering carries a maximum penalty of $250, while possession of glass containers on the Missouri River areas comprises a fine of $100.
