(WXYZ) — Michigan State Police is reminding the public that littering is still a crime.
There is still personal protection equipment littering parking lots and grocery stores across Michigan.
Previously, 7 Action News shared photos of grocery stores in Oakland County with gloves and masks disposed of in the parking lot.
MSP First District tweeted about finding more PPE discarded in parking lots at local grocery stores, some of them by garbage cans.
MSP notes that someone else has to utilize gloves to clean these up.
#Michiganders this is not the way to dispose of PPE. I found these and more in a parking lot at a local grocery store. Some by garbage cans. This is littering and someone else has to utilize gloves to clean these up. #Littering is a crime. #BeSafe & #Healthy. pic.twitter.com/3Bv79q2C4S— MSP First District (@MSPFirstDist) April 8, 2020
