Anti-Litter Policy  

Effective date:

Southeastern Green Seal


Southeastern Louisiana University takes pride in maintaining the beauty of its campus. Improper disposal of any form of litter is strictly prohibited on its main campus and all regional locations. Litter is any waste material, garbage, or rubbish, including but not limited to food, food wrappers, paper, cans, bottles, cigarette butts, ashes, or discarded debris. All members of the University community and visitors are required to utilize trash receptacles to dispose of any unwanted items or debris. Intentional disposal of waste material except in designated receptacles is a violation of the law, university policy, and the Student Code of Conduct. Compliance with this policy is expected from all University students, faculty, staff, visitors and contractors. 

Student violators will be ticketed by University Police personnel and referred to the Office of Student Advocacy and Accountability for disciplinary action as appropriate.  Faculty, staff, contractors or visitors who violate this policy will be ticketed, and as appropriate may be reported to the relevant university department/office. 

The penalty shall be a choice of either payment of a $50 fine or 10 hours of Community Service (litter pickup). Egregious or repeat offenders may be subject to additional sanctions as determined by the Office of Student Advocacy and Accountability or other relevant university department/office as appropriate.
