Pitch In Pascagoula!

The City of Pascagoula is excited to launch an anti-litter campaign to raise awareness of the effects of littering on the community and to enlist citizen support in keeping Mississippi’s Flagship City clean.

“The reality is that to be effective all citizens must ‘pitch in’ and help keep Pascagoula litter free by properly disposing of their own trash and by helping pick up the litter they pass as they go about their day, even if it’s not their own,” Mayor Dane Maxwell said.

“The image of our City is important,” Mayor Maxwell added.  “When potential investors or residents come to Pascagoula to consider making this their home, we want them to see a City whose citizens take pride in this community and who take ownership of it through their active participation in keeping Pascagoula beautiful. “

The City will more actively and with greater diligence, remove any graffiti, repair or remove broken items, improve trash collection in public spaces, increase signage, and evaluate the placement of trash receptacles to enhance pride in public areas. 
The Police Department will be to enforcing the current litter laws and ordinances and, with the assistance of the City Attorney, consider ways to strengthen such laws should the need arise.  The fine for littering is set by the Municipal Judge.

Send questions or offers to assist in ‘Pitch In Pascagoula’ to Assistant City Manager Frank Corder at 228.938.6723 or fcorder@cityofpascagoula.com
