Littering in Richmond County



Littering refers to disposing of waste, debris or garbage in places that are not designated waste containers or waste management facilities. The ideal way to handle the problem of littering is for each member of our community to take responsibility and try their best to properly dispose of waste.

Littering is also illegal and under Section 99 of the Nova Scotia Environment Act a littering fine can be issued by the RCMP in the amount of $467.50.

Please do your part to help to keep our County Clean!
