Many visitors to the village abuse our hospitality by littering. Littering despoils the village's renowned beauty and is costly to taxpayers. Hours of weekly cleanup adds to the work schedule of the department of public works. Residents and visitors are asked to cooperate in the effort to keep the village free of litter.
Household refuse is not allowed in public trash receptacles. Violators of the Village litter laws are subject to substantial fines. The Village of East Hampton is one of the most beautiful in the country. Make sure you do your part to keep it that way.
