Litter (waste products)

When the Skylab space station burned up in Earth's atmosphere in 1979, the government of Western Australia fined NASA $400 for littering. It was eventually paid in 2009.

The 'Don't mess with Texas' slogan started out as an anti-litter campaign.

Cigarette butts are the most littered item in the world, with 4.5 trillion discarded annually.

Tires are the most often dumped hazardous waste. In 2007 the United States generated 262 million scrap tires.

12 is the average amount of steps a person will hold a piece of trash before they litter.
