Litering

Clean communities also have a better chance of attracting new businesses than those where litter is common. Make sure trash cans have lids that can be securely fastened. If you have curbside trash collection, don't put loose trash in boxes. Tie papers in a bundle before placing them in a curbside recycling bin.
