PalmettoPride fights litter in South Carolina by addressing prevention through education, supporting enforcement, connecting community groups to resources, and mobilizing volunteers.

Encouraging South Carolinians to volunteer and participate in a community pickup

Since 2006, participants in PalmettoPride’s programs and events have removed 90,412,918 pounds of litter from roads and natural areas.

Providing local communities with resources to expand cleanup efforts

From multi-faceted PSA campaigns to community grants, PalmettoPride builds awareness and provides resources to prevent litter.

Changing litter habits and behaviors through education

PalmettoPride’s education programs are designed to encourage students of all ages to be active in litter prevention. Our signature programs reach over 100,000 South Carolina students annually.

Supporting law enforcement to enforce South Carolina litter laws

PalmettoPride works in partnership with the South Carolina Litter Control Association to encourage all law enforcement officers to enforce South Carolina’s littering, illegal dumping, and unsecured loads laws and the fines associated with them.
