The Montgomery County Police Department will be participating in an anti-littering campaign run by the Alice Ferguson Foundation and the Metropolitan Washington Council of Governments.

During the campaign, which runs through May 7, police say they'll be extra vigilant in cracking down on litter violations.

Under Maryland law, littering of items under 100 pounds is a misdemeanor, punishable by up to 30 days in jail or a $1,500 fine. If you drop more litter in Montgomery County, the fines increase.

Police are encouraging the public to report littering violations.
