Littering & Illegal Dumping (Ohio Revised Code 3767.32): Leaving any trash or discarded items on any public or private land or waterway is a third-degree misdemeanor in Ohio, good for a fine up to $500 and 60 days in jail. The law also prohibits putting trash in someone else's trash receptacle without permission from the owner or a civil authority, unless the receptacle is intended for public use or the trash was generated on the property where the receptacle is located.
