Waterloo Police are cracking down on littering


The Waterloo Police Department is cracking down on littering during September.

It's the quality of life initiative for September. Fines for these violations range from $200 to $750.

Then starting on September 10, the Waterloo Code Enforcement Unit will start a beautification program, in which they'll start cracking down on violators. The program will start in the area outlined by Locust Street, West 4th Street, the Cedar River and West 7th Street. Later police hope to expand their efforts to the rest of the city.

"Owners of locations found to be in violation of the ordinance will be notified and given 10 days to remove the offending material," Director of Safety Services Daniel J. Trelka said in a statement. "If the material is not removed, a citation will be issued, the City will remove the material, and the cost assessed to the property owner."
