Sen. Smith and Supervisor Moore Highlight Anti-Litter Campaign
Senator Ralph Smith and Roanoke County Supervisor Charlotte Moore will be highlighting their anti-littering efforts at a press conference at the County Administration Building at 10:30 a.m. on Friday, January 3.
Senator Smith successfully sponsored SB 1166 (2013) which created a new mandatory minimum of 10 hours of community service for individuals caught littering. He championed the penalty as an effort to help clean up communities while reducing the cost of removing garbage from public spaces.
Supervisor Moore’s is raising awareness of the penalty through a new Roanoke County sign campaign and a program to report littering in real time directly to the County website.
