Litter Prevention
Volunteer

Volunteers are a vital part of the Litter Ends Here program and an asset that cannot be replaced. Our volunteers are our best advocates to the community and they help to build positive exposure for Greenville County Litter Ends Here program. It is our hope you will become part of our team dedicated volunteers.

Litter Ends Here provides all the training, supplies and we even pickup your bags of collected litter for free.

Volunteer Opportunities

  • Convenience Center Cleanups
    On Mondays all the Greenville County Waste and Recycling Centers are closed to the public, which gives youth and school groups a safe place to volunteer without any traffic concerns. These locations can support large groups and have bus parking.

  • WaterGoat Cleanup
    Help keep our watershed clean, by removing trash from Oak Grove Lake’s water trash trap and park. Using fishing nets kids can scoop litter out of the water from the bank of the lake. Your youth group will gain first-hand experience of how litter travels in water and affects our watershed.

  • Individual Cleanup
    Some of this programs most successful stories come from our volunteers who prefer to volunteer on an independent basis. Independent volunteers are our most consistent and valuable volunteer members. Their work often inspires others in their area to join the effort!

  • Join a Program Lead Cleanup
    Throughout the year the Litter Ends Here program hosts a number of group cleanups around the county and we are always looking for help from individuals like you. These group cleanups are a great way to get started in the program.

  • Lead a Volunteer Group Cleanup
    If you’re looking for a great way to give back to the community, a group litter cleanup is for you! You can pick a local road to clean up as a group. We’ll provide your group with safety vests, bags, gloves and litter grabbers.

  • Adopt a Road
    Your business can choose a section of a Greenville County road to maintain by doing litter pickups four times per year. When you adopt a road, the name of your volunteer group will be displayed on an Adopt a Road sign to show the public how much your group cares. We’ll provide your group with safety vests, bags, gloves and litter grabbers.

  • Become a Volunteer Sponsor
    If your business, church, or group wants to help end litter, but you don’t have time to volunteer then you can help encourage and thank others by supplying the program with prizes and gifts to thank volunteers. Groups have supported and thanked volunteers in all kinds of unique ways, from providing free sandwiches to all the active volunteers, to buying prizes baskets for volunteers who have earned the top spots on our programs leaderboard.
