CONWAY, S.C. (AP) - Horry County police say they are cracking down on littering, especially along state Highway 90 near the county landfill.

Police Chief Joseph Hill told The Sun News of Myrtle Beach (https://bit.ly/2mu1uSc) that tickets will be written beginning in April to help clean up the highway.

The Horry County Sanitation District plans to start charging fees on drivers coming to the landfill without tarps covering loads of garbage and yard debris. County council is expected to consider a proposal next month allowing a fee of $150 on large commercial haulers and $75 for other vehicles.

County Councilman Al Allen says he expects littering to increase as spring begins.

But Councilman Bill Howard worries the fees might prompt some people to dump their garbage elsewhere.
