Littering is both lazy and disgusting. Posting a thread bragging about doing it is pathetic.

He's not bragging about it. Who would brag about littering? :lol:

 

I'm not going to sit here and act like I'm perfect and never done anything bad in my life like some people who have posted, yes I've littered before but very rarely nowadays.

Have some respect for the world around you and put your sh*t in the bin. If everyone was just slightly less lazy, and did just that little bit more to be considerate of others and improve their immediate surroundings the world would be an infinitely better place.

Littering is fine along a highway or interstate.. what gets me is everytime I go to mow my lawn (especially ditches) or do my 'outside' business, that I have to pick up f*cking McDonald's bags/beer cans/cups/cans/grocery bags every motherf*cking time.

 

If you're in a neighborhood, don't f*cking litter.. keep it to the highways and interstates where people are paid to clean it. Jackasses.

Enlighten me.  Why is littering more acceptable along a highway?

meh.

 

everyone litters inadvertently.

it's practically impossible not to litter unless you're still living as a caveman.

 

but I've almost always been conscious of trying to keep my litter to a minimum.

you can disagree but it's true.

 

it's virtually impossible to avoid littering if you live any semblance of a modern lifestyle with modern creature comforts.

do you own a phone? is anything in your home made of space age materials? congratulations, you litter :lol:

Littering and properly disposing of refuse are two totally different things.

Yes, and any waste buildup is indirect in that case.  It's not the same as intentionally leaving waste out on a street or on the side of the highway.  

 

Plus, you'd be amazed at what environmental enthusiasts can do to eliminate waste.

I remember when I was in elementary school whenever someone would 'litter' they were forced to clean the entire schoolyard whilst wearing a not-so-fashionably yellow vest. It really worked as a deterrence. I think they should introduce something along the lines of this, a fitting community service for litterers, even first time offenders. Fines really don't do much good.

Here you quite often see prisoners being forced to clean up litter from the highways. I think they like it because they get some fresh air.

 

Your idea would be better. Public shaming and a full unpaid shift of picking up garbage. Will teach some humility to the guy driving around in a BMW and throwing fast food wrappers out the window.

that's not what I'm talking about.

 

if you live in the modern world with plumbing, and cell phones, and paper, and plastic then you inadvertently contribute to litter in the world. like it or not, this is the way it is in most "civilized" countries.

@Raavi and theadmiral: The issue is that the police rarely enforce this law.  It's a great idea to force violators to clean up, but there's the issue first of getting them to show up to do it and second, the likelihood that they'll be caught when they litter again is unlikely, and I think many people are aware of that.

 

I always see the discrete "No Littering. $300 Fine" signs scattered along roads and towns, but I honestly don't think I know a single person who has been caught littering, and I definitely know some litterbugs.  It's probably tedious for police officers to deal with, as it seems petty, and it's so easy to disguise it or make it look like an accident.  Some of you guys mentioned how you "accidentally" drop your tickets or whatever.  Would a police officer fine you for this or calmly warn you or simply ignore it?  

 

Honestly, people value money more than a lot of things, so a ridiculous fine is probably the easiest way to make them pay and reconsider doing it again.  I just don't know how many people would show up to clean up, whether it be because they're forgetful or just lazy. Hell, a lot of people are so lazy that they might rather take a fine and forget about it.

I only litter when I have small items like caps or candy wrappers. But I won't litter with anything else.

I hate people that throw rubbish out, it's wrong, lazy and should come with a prison sentence. 

Prison for littering? That is borderline retardation.

Governments have departments that clean it up, they're paid. Raises employment, not to mention community service for criminals, etc.

 

I'm not saying go out and dump your entire bin out on the road.. but if someone has some trash in their vehicle and they're on a stretch of highway for miles with no need to stop for fuel, etc. Throw it out..

Because it is difficult to walk a few more yards to a bin and properly dispose of your trash.. Wait a second, it isn't.

Lol @ this topic, my friend knocked my door about 2 hours ago and he said he got a £75 fine for throwing his cigarette butt on the streets in Croydon (of all places). When you think off the money alone it's easy to say 'heh, £75, f*ck it', but think about the insignificance of one cigarette and when you compare that to £75, it can be a kick in the teeth.

 

I used to not care a lot when I was younger (like 13,14) when it came to that sort of stuff, but I do care about people's opinion of me now, and I don't really get a satisfying feeling from littering, but then I am a tidy person in general, if I go to a restaurant or cafe, I don't mess up the table, I like to keep as clean as possible.

I leave a trail of cigarette butts wherever I travel to, whether on foot or driving. I don't think I'd do it as much if my car had an ashtray, though.

Anybody that says a prison sentence for littering is a reasonable punishment needs their head screwing on. A £2000 fine is enough surely. (£2000 where I am).

I think letting dogs sh*te on the streets is £500 here and litter can go from £500 - £2000.

Sure sure sure. I get what you are trying to do but come on...you know the difference between littering and proper disposal of consumer waste.

Well humans can be lazy and so can I at times because I'm not in the mood to care. Its not like I'm throwing bottles of soda on the ground or balls of paper everywhere, its a god damn wrapper every once in a blue moon for f*ck sakes. Stop acting holier than thou like some sort of moronic hypocrite who thinks he can do no wrong.

@CalltheCoroner, I can't imagine how you'd react if I made up a bullsh*t lie that I dump oil into my local lake. Haha you'd probably have a heartattack. Stop overreacting, this is why you're so annoying.

Holier than thou? I'm just stating the obvious, If you're feeling lazy just stick the cap / wrapper in your pocket, and when you're through feeling lazy discard of it in a bin or the like.. It takes as much effort as throwing it on the ground and it is environmentally friendly.

85% of the time I do put sh*t in my pocket. I was just being honest in my first post because it would be a lie to say I don't litter even if I rarely do.
