PalmettoPride’s enforcement programs are designed to aide officers across the state in the enforcement of litter laws. We provide tools and resources to assist officers and environmental enforcement teams including training and safety, equipment grants and consultation on community service programs.
PalmettoPride Enforcement Committee
PalmettoPride’s Enforcement Committee includes law enforcement and code officers from around the state including Sheriff’s Departments, Police Departments, Litter Control, Highway Patrol and Public Safety officers to advise our organization on litter enforcement activities, needs, important legislative needs and many other important aspects to improve the quality of litter control practices in the state.
South Carolina Litter Commission
On April 2, 2015, the Take Palmetto Pride Where You Live Act was enacted into law as Act 8; an initiative spearheaded by SC Representative Gilda-Cobb-Hunter. This Act brought twelve organizations together which formed the South Carolina Litter Commission to establish strategic plans, recommend initiatives for litter removal, reduction and prevention; methods to expand litter awareness and techniques on how to evaluate the effectiveness of ongoing programs and campaigns in the state.
