Trash is a problem in our parish—but a preventable one
Even though not everyone litters, everyone has to pay the consequences.
For example Louisiana spends about $40 million in taxpayer dollars each year on litter removal, abatement, education, and enforcement.
It costs $11.5 billion annually to clean up trash in the U.S.
93% of homeowners say a littered neighborhood would decrease their assessment of a home’s value and influence their decision to purchase a property.
32% of litter at storm drains and drainage areas are tobacco products, making it worse when it floods.
36% of business development officials say that litter impacts a decision to locate to a community.
The presence of litter in a community decreases property values by nearly 10%.
