  • It is a Class C misdemeanor to illegally dispose of litter that weighs 15 pounds or less or has a volume of 13 gallons or less.
  • It is a Class A misdemeanor to illegally dispose of litter that weighs 500 pounds or more or has a volume of 100 cubic feet or more.

If a person has been previously convicted of violating this Act, that person's punishment will be upgraded to the next highest category for any subsequent violation of this Act. In other words if someone was convicted of a Class A misdemeanor previously they would now be subject to a third-degree felony.
