Firework Debris is Littering

Posted: Updated:

Great Falls Police received 110 firework complaints, but by the time they got there usually the people were gone only leaving behind firework debris.  Even though you are not allowed to set off fireworks on public property such as parks, streets, and sidewalks, today remnants of July 4th are everywhere and that is a punishable offense.

Bryan Slavik with Great Falls Police Department says, "we've had such tremendous problems with it over the years that it has it's own fine schedule. For instance, first offense is $100, 2nd offense is $200, third offense is $300, and subsequent offenses are $1,000".

Leaving firework debris is dangerous.  Small children or animals could easily ingest the chemicals.  It's also an unsightly mess in front of homes and businesses.  You should clean up your own fireworks, but ultimately the responsibility falls to the property owner.
