Alderman looks at solutions to littering problem

NORWICH – According to Sixth Ward Alderman Robert Jeffrey, the issue of littering in the city needs to be addressed.

At the January meeting of the Finance and Personnel Committee, Jeffrey discussed the possibility of purchasing signs that state the possible fines for the crime in an attempt to deter people from littering.



“Birdsall Street is a pass route for traffic, and for a lot of people it’s turning into an easy way to dispose of their water bottles,” Jeffrey said.

Jeffrey also pointed out the high number of shopping carts that are seen littering the streets. “There is a lot of garbage being thrown around, and to turn the city around we need a clean city,” Jeffrey said.
