Littering of PPE (personal protective equipment) is happening across the nation, even in Walker County.While Jasper Mayor David O’Mary admits he hasn’t received reports of masks being significantly littered throughout the city, it’s not uncommon to see face masks, medical gloves and other items discarded in the parking lots of area businesses.

PPE is being relied upon to help prevent the spread of COVID-19, and proper disposal of PPE is being encouraged throughout the world.“It’s quite alarming where these are ending up,” Gary Stokes, founder of marine conservation group Oceans

Asia, said in a feature published by the New York Times. “It’s not just the beaches. We’re getting them out in nature, but also downtown; you see them on the streets, in the gutter, on public transport.”O’Mary said people who litter face masks — or anything in the city — will be held accountable.“I’m going to encourage (Jasper Police Chief J.C. Poe) and our police officers to keep an eye out for that sort of thing because that’s on par with toxic waste and we don’t need that in our city,” O’Mary said.

According to Code of Alabama documentation provided by Jasper Municipal Court, criminal littering is considered a Class B misdemeanor with a first conviction fine of up to $500. Subsequent criminal littering convictions can result in a fine of up to $1,000 and up to 100 community service hours to pick up litter.Alabama Code Section 13A-7-29 states criminal littering is when someone “knowingly deposits in any manner litter on any public or private property or in any public or private waters without permission to do so” or “throws, drops, or permits to be thrown of dropped any litter upon or alongside any highway, road, street, or public right-of-way and does not immediately remove the same or cause it to be removed.”


Poe said his officers are always encouraged to issue citations to people caught in the act of littering. “They definitely don’t need to be throwing it (PPE) out a window or just throwing it down,” Poe said.


While experts can’t say for certain how likely it would be to contract COVID-19 from a disposed face mask, the Centers for Disease Control states that coronavirus can live on surfaces from hours to days, depend-ing on the material in question.“Based on what I have heard from medical professionals, the virus can live on surfaces for some time, so that really un-derscores the importance of disposal of masks in an approved trash receptacle,” O’Mary said.

Some businesses in Jasper, such as Walgreens, have signs to encourage customers to properly dispose of PPE. Experts note that PPE should be thrown in the trash and not recycled, since the items are considered contaminated.
