PalmettoPride presented the 2021 Leaders Against Litter awards at the South Carolina Association of Counties annual meeting. The Leaders Against Litter awards honor elected officials who seek to change the environmental landscape in their communities by working with their administrations, employees and citizens on litter prevention. These Leaders Against Litter lead the charge to make important changes in how their counties address litter, specifically following what PalmettoPride believes are the basic tenets for change: education, enforcement, awareness and pickup.
Awards were presented to the following elected officials:
“Litter is not unique to South Carolina, but how we address litter in our communities is,” said Sarah Lyles, Executive Director for PalmettoPride. “These Leaders have come up with solutions for their communities’ needs and resources.”
PalmettoPride has the experience and national network base to help local governments plan and implement litter prevention programs to fit the needs of communities, municipalities and counties, with a wide range of solutions and price points.
“Litter prevention does not have to carry a heavy price tag, but ignoring the problem will always cost your county its quality of life,” said Lyles.
