An Act To Amend Title 21 Of The Delaware Code Relating To Discarding Yard Waste On A Highway.


This Act clarifies that yard waste is included in the types of trash and litter that it is illegal to discard on a highway. This Act also defines “yard waste”. This Act also makes technical corrections to conform existing law to the standards of the Delaware Legislative Drafting Manual. This Substitute Bill differs from Senate Bill No. 47 by removing all of the following to avoid a potential conflict of the changes exceeding the scope of the bill’s title: (1) The upper limit to the fine for a first violation of subsections (a), (b), (c), or (d) of § 4189 of Title 21. (2) The changes addressing the redesignating error. (3) The revision of the word “section” to “subsection” in the penalty provision regarding the penalty for violating all subsections besides subsection (e) of § 4189 of Title 21.
