litter

the offence committed where a person throws down, drops or otherwise deposits any litter in any place to which this law applies and leaves it. The law applies to any place in the area of a principal litter authority which is open to the air, unless the public does not have access to it, with or without payment. It is immaterial whether the litter is deposited on land or in water. Litter expressly includes the discarded ends of cigarettes, cigars and like products, and discarded chewing-gum and the discarded remains of other products designed for chewing.
