Eye-Opening Statistics on Littering: Infographic

Littering is a big problem that's why we need companies that haul away garbage for us. To visually see just how much waste is wasted each year I created this infographic. The infographic is titled, 'Littering Statistics.' Here are some highlights from the littering infographic: Total annual amount spent on cleaning up litter yearly $11.5 billion. Percent of all littered items that are cigarette butts 50%. Percent of people who have admitted to littering in the past 5 years 75%. Total amound of litter that is dumped into the ocean every year 9 billion tons. The average number of steps a person will hold a piece of trash before they litter 12 paces. The most common objects used in littering statistics include aluminum, glass, other, plastic, paper, and fast food. Total amound of trash generated each year in the U.S. 250 million. This infographic was prepared by a company called FreeJunkRemovalQuotes.com. As you can see by these littering statistics it's not going away any time. One bright spot I see with people smoking less and less we will hopefully eventually have 0 waste from cigarette butts. Thanks again for taking the time to look at these eye-opening statistics on littering. There is nothing worse than a dirty, run down, city lets do our part to clean it up!
