Don't Be A "Pollcat"

"Pollcat", n. polluter that puts posters and signs on poles and trees before an election and doesn’t remove them when the election is over.

Putting political posters on utility poles is a violation of the PA Crimes Code, Section 6905 and can result in a fine ranging from $50-$300 and 90 days in jail if the fine is not paid. It violates utility company policy and may be removed by the utility company with cost of removal charged to the sign owner. It can wound linemen with nails and staples. It delays the restoration of power; the nails and staples must be removed before linemen can climb poles.

Putting political posters on roadsides violates the PA Code Title 67, Chapter 445, dealing with outdoor advertising devices and is against the law in many municipalities. It can result in a fine between $50-$300. It can block driver visibility and cause accidents.

Putting political posters on trees is against the law in many municipalities. This also may result in fines and can injure or kill the tree with the nails and staples.

If you are a political candidate or are working with one, be considerate. Remove signs and posters when Election Day is over. This is not only the law, but it fights visual pollution and helps keep the area in its’ natural beauty.

The Garden Club of Montrose urges everyone to help fight litter in your community. Working with the Garden Club Federation of Pennsylvania and National Garden Clubs, Inc., they take the pledge not to litter. Please join them in this endeavor.

For more information on fighting litter, visit or call the Litter Hotline at 1-888-LITTERBUG.
