VALDOSTA, Ga. (WCTV) -- The Valdosta Police Department is warning residents that officers will be issuing citations to those who are caught littering.

Police say the City of Valdosta has seen an increasing problem with litter, and crews with the Public Works Department have been forced to pick up trash along the roadways rather than working their normal garbage routes.

VPD says officers will begin "aggressively" stopping and citing motorists and pedestrians caught littering.

Residents seen throwing trash from their vehicles, dropping litter on the ground as a pedestrian or caught illegally dumping will be issued a citation and will face a fine of up to $675.
