Litter Control

The Litter Control Association and PalmettoPride work to convey the message that every citizen has a responsibility to help keep South Carolina beautiful. Perhaps the single most meaningful element in the success of any anti-litter campaign is the effect it has on students. If we can teach our children the importance of cleaning up our state and educate them to stop litter at its source, then we have a chance to finally eliminate litter in South Carolina.  more
