    Stop littering on the ground.
    Stop littering.

    My question is that must we use the verb 'litter' with 'on the ground' or is that not necessary because 'litter' means
    to leave waste paper, cans etc on the ground in a public place.

    Re: litter

    Litter is not necessarily left only on the ground.

    The table/pond/roof was littered with paper bags and bits of food.
    The car was full of bottles and other litter.

    So "stop littering" covers all possible situations, including the ground.
