What about solid waste and litter?

According to the Salt Lake County Health Department, solid waste can include any of the following: garbage, trash, hazardous waste, industrial waste, construction and demolition waste, used oil, or accumulated discarded materials.

It is against the law for any person to deposit any solid waste or litter, or allow any person to do the same, to any public or private property or lot, street or road, ditch, gutter, or any place other than an approved trash container area.

Littering is the willful or negligent throwing of solid waste onto any premises other than approved trash container areas.
