Litter Control Officers
WV Code 7-1-3ff (c) gives county commissions the authority to designate an enforcement agency to enforce ordinances of the county. This enforcement agency can include the hiring of a county litter control officer. If the county hires a litter control officer, then WV Code 7-1-3ff (d) also authorizes the county litter control officers to enforce the laws relating to litter, open dumps, and proof of proper solid waste disposal.
WV Code 7-1-3ff (d) requires the WVDEP to provide training to county litter control officers before they enforce laws relating to litter, open dumps, and proof of proper disposal of solid waste. This course is designed to certify that county litter control officers have completed the required training.
