TO LITTER: meaning and examples

Good morning, Today's word is: to litter It refers to: when things cover an area in an untidy way. It also means: to throw small pieces of paper or other small items of waste materials (basura) on the ground instead of in a rubbish bin. Litter can also be used as a noun to refer to paper or other waste materials. Example 1 Perhaps if people were more civic-minded, they wouldn't litter so much and the city would be a cleaner place to live. Example 2 Fred's desk is littered with paper. I don't know how he can work in the middle of such a mess! Example 3 The sign reads Please throw your litter in the bins. There is a 30$ fine for littering, by order of the Municipal Council Authority.
