Litter is a serious and costly environmental matter. Improperly contained household garbage is one of the eight main sources of litter in communities. College Station believes litter to be an environmental priority.
Windblown litter reduced the aesthetic appeal of public places including neighborhood streets, parks, and waterways.
Bagging your household garbage prevents windblown litter while your garbage container is curbside as well as during collection.
City Ordinance states: All bags shall be securely tied or otherwise fastened or closed so as to prevent spillage or entry by vector or vermin. Set an example for your neighbors, friends, and children by putting trash where is belongs.
