FAIR LAWN, N.J. -- Fair Lawn's Recycling Coordinator Ron Lottermann will discuss the borough's new established a new "Litter Marshall" program at the Fair Lawn High School on Thursday, March 10.
Lottermann got the idea when driving through Ohio when he saw a sign, “Report Litterers” and set about implementing the program in town.
The Litter Marshall Program empowers borough residents to report people who are illegally dumping waste matter on public property. Drivers are seen tossing refuse from their automobile windows. The procedure of noting the license plate number, date and location of the act and reporting it to Lottermann’s office, enables the department to trace the person responsible.
Lottermann’s talk will explain how littering and illegal dumping create alarming dangers to watersheds, contaminate the two rivers bordering Fair Lawn and pollute drinking water. He will also discuss how to counteract these issues.
The discussion, sponsored by the League of Women's Voters will take place at 7 p.m. in the high school's D-Cafe.
The Fair Lawn High School is located at 14-00 Berdan Ave.
