Keep Greenville County Beautiful

The Litter Ends Here program is excited to announce we are now a member of Keep Greenville County Beautiful, which is the non-profit affiliate of South Carolina PalmettoPride and Keep America Beautiful. This is a nationwide effort to inspire and educate people to take action daily to improve and beautify their community environment.

They will be featuring Litter Ends Here's volunteers and work-to-end litter on their social pages so go check it out!



 

Volunteer Safety Reminder Of the Month

Everyone participating in a litter pick-up on the side of the road must wear a safety vest at all times.

Litter Ends here provides Class 3 HiViz safety vests to all of our volunteers for free. It is so important for every single volunteer to wear it to increase their visibility.

If you need a vest, please contact Summer Gagnon at sgagnon@greenvillecounty.org

We are so thankful to Comal 864 for holding their amazing Trash Bash litter cleanup this month!

SCDOT Litter Cleanup
SCDOT Litter Cleanup

SCDOT and Greenville County Litter Ends Here teamed up to remove 1,300 lbs. of litter from Farrs Bridge Road.

´╗┐There are a number of roads within the county that require a lane closure for the litter crews to safely remove litter. Many times, SCDOT provides traffic control; together, we can get the job done!



 

Harmful Litter
Harmful Litter

Saving you from flat tires!

The Greenville County litter crews picked up a few dozen screws off the roadside, saving drivers from flat tires!

An entire box of screws was found scattered alongside Farr Bridge Road during our cleanup with SCDOT.

Litter isn't only unsightly and bad for the environment, but it can also cause harm to your vehicles.



 

Finding History
Finding History

It's amazing what the Greenville County Litter Ends Here litter crews find sometimes!

During a recent cleanup, a crew member found a 1950's vintage Dr. Pepper embossed aqua glass bottle.

While this is an interesting find, it gives a tangible perspective to the lasting effect litter has on our environment. This bottle hasn't even started to break- down and it was in our environment for nearly 70 years!

The Greenville County Litter Ends Here team pulled a scooter out of the trash trap at Oak Grove Lake. This is a great reminder that anything can become litter!
