Report a Litterbug

PalmettoPride sponsors a statewide Litter Busters Hotline so you can report litterbugs. The program, made possible thanks to the cooperation of the South Carolina Department of Motor Vehicles (SCDMV), works like this:

You spot someone tossing litter from an automobile. You immediately call…

1-877-7LITTER (754-8837)

…and report the location, time and the litterbug’s license number. We have a 24/7 answering service take our Hotline calls in an effort to make sure that the lines are always open. You can also report a violation from our website using the form below.

The litterbug will receive a letter from SCDMV informing him or her that they can’t get away with littering in South Carolina. The letter will explain that if a law enforcement officer had witnessed the littering, it could have resulted in a serious fine or even jail time. The letters are not a form of citation and we do not keep records.

The SCDMV and PalmettoPride holds all information in strict confidence and the owner’s identity is not released to individuals or organizations.
