A person commits Criminal Littering or Polluting if such person without lawful authority does any of the following:

Throws, places, drops or permits to be dropped on public property or property of another which is not a lawful dump any litter, destructive or injurious material which he does not immediately remove
Discharges or permits to be discharged any sewage, oil products or other harmful substances into any waters or onto any shorelines within the state
Dumps any earth, soil, stones, ores or minerals on any land
Even if you throw something that is organic and can decompose- like an apple core – on the sidewalk it is still considered littering.

Depending on the nature and volume of “Littering” or “Polluting” involved the offense could range from a Class 6 Felony to a Class 2 Misdemeanor.
