The town of Wrightsville Beach has an ordinance prohibiting littering on the beach.
“No person shall throw, deposit, cause, or permit to be thrown or deposited, any glass, bottles, glassware, cans, garbage, waste, or refuse of any kind on the public beaches and quasi-public beaches along the Atlantic Ocean, Masonboro Inlet, Banks Channel, and other waters and waterways in the town or in the water adjacent to the beaches and shores thereof.”
Anyone who violates the ordinance faces a civil penalty of $100, which is supposed to be paid within 10 days of receiving the citation.
