The person responsible for littering is also responsible for the cleaning. If the litterer is not discovered, the secondary responsibility for cleaning lies with the holder of the area or the landowner.
Reporting litter directly to the right responsible party will enable quicker processing of the matter. First, try to find out who is responsible for the cleanliness and maintenance of the area.
