Don't Litter Image

It takes our entire community to keep Greenville County litter-free. Litter affects us all. If we all take responsibility for one small part, we can put an END to litter!

Why should you care?

Litter directly impacts our local economy. It decreases property values and increases taxes and insurance rates.

The quality of life for our families and future generations is being impacted by today’s litter.
