Litter is garbage- like food , paper and can .Where many people
live together, litter is a problem .
People don't always put their garbage in the garbage can because
it's easier to drop paper than to dispose of it correctly.
Litter is ugly because it makes the city look dirty, and thus it spoils the
view. The wind blows papers far away and as a result they are often
difficult to catch.
When they blow against a fence, they stay there forming a wall of
garbage .Litter is a health hazard ,too .Food and garbage bring animals
which sometimes carry disease .
Some people want to control litter so they never throw litter themselves
and sometimes they work together in groups to clean up the city.
In most places , littering is against the law .
The law punishes people who throw garbage in the streets that is why
they usually pay a fine , and sometimes go to jail .
Two famous sayings in the United States are : " Don't be a litterbug "
"Every litter bit hurts "
