It is declared and recognized that the proliferation and accumulation of litter discarded throughout this State endangers the free utilization and enjoyment of a clean and healthful environment by the people and constitutes a public health hazard; and recognizing that there has been a collective failure on the part of government, business and the public to accept, plan for and accomplish effective litter control, there is enacted the “Maine Litter Control Act.” [1971, c. 405, §1 (NEW).]
