I personally would rather just set an action camera to record over the timespan the litterer usually comes by. Consumer trail cameras don't usually have great definition - worse than action cameras anyway - and the tossing might go unnoticed while with video, you'll grab several frames per second.

Assuming deterrence is your goal, I’d ask your neighbor if you can first put up a “DON’T LITTER - UNDER VIDEO SURVEILLANCE” sign. That may be enough by itself to deter. And if not, you can set up the camera later and the perp won’t have any counterclaim of violation of privacy if you catch them in the act.

I'm not providing specific product recommendations, because that kind of information goes out-of-date very quickly. (In fact, SE discourages shopping questions for that reason.)
