New Jersey Revised Statutes § 13:1e-214 - Findings, Declarations Relative To The Clean Communities Program.

13:1E-214 Findings, declarations relative to the Clean Communities Program.

2.The Legislature finds that an uncluttered landscape is among the most priceless heritages which New Jersey can bequeath to posterity; that it is the duty of government to promote and encourage a clean and safe environment; that the proliferation and accumulation of carelessly discarded litter may pose a threat to the public health and safety; that the litter problem is especially serious in a State as densely populated and heavily traveled as New Jersey; and that unseemly litter has an adverse economic effect on New Jersey by making the State less attractive to tourists and new industry and residents.

The Legislature, therefore, declares it to be in the aesthetic, environmental, and economic interests of the State of New Jersey to support a Clean Communities Program.

L.2002, c.128, s.2; amended 2007, c.311, s.14.
