Abstract

The cost to Iowa taxpayers is over $13.5 million per year for cleaning up littering and illegal dumping by others. It is estimated that the cost to the private sector is at least this high. Over thirteen million of this cost is spent on clean up efforts; less than $300,000 is spent on prevention. To have success in combating illegal dumping and littering, more effort, time, and money must be paid to prevention. The following is a summary the most recent research and work on beautification and the litter and illegal dumping problem
