throw rubbish on green / drop litter on green spaces


Senior Member

I'd like to ask you about the following sentence. It was created by a Polish student and I am afraid the expression the student coined 'throw rubbish on green' is incorrect. I'd phrase it this way: 'throw rubbish / drop litter on green spaces.' Of course, I know that drop litter is not the same as throw rubbish, but I think the first is better in this context. What do you think?

'Maybe the fact that they are scarce it is one of the reasons why people drop litter on green spaces / throw rubbish on green.

Thank you.
