Ant-litter campaign kicks off in Sylvester

SYLVESTER, GA (WALB) - Code enforcement officers in Sylvester want to encourage people not to litter.

It's part of an anti-littering campaign officers are kicking off.

They plan on talking with residents and schools about the impact litter has on the community.

Officers say litter travels and can end up in our water ways.

"It goes a lot of places. It goes through our sewers, it stops up our sewers and it also infests rodents. Different things of a negative nature," says Sylvester Code Enforcement Director Issac Adams.

Aluminum cans and cigarette butts are two of the most common types of litter they find.
