The N.C Department of Transportation's Swat-A-Litterbug Program encourages the public to report people who litter in an effort to help make North Carolina roadways cleaner. The program provides every indivdual an opportunity to be an active participant in reducing litter on North Carolina roadways.
The public can report those who litter by contacting NCDOT's Litter Management Section by using this app or calling 1-800-331-5864.
What happens after a report is filed?
Upon receipt of the reported information, NCDOT will mail the registered owner of the vehicle that was reported a formal notification, signed by the N.C. State Highway Patrol, that informs them about the littering offense, the penalties of littering and urges them to help keep North Carolina clean.
