Adopt-A-Highway Palmetto Pride

5th Jul 2013

Since 1988, Adopt-A-Highway volunteers have been cleaning up litter along South Carolina highways.  PalmettoPride is excited to bring Adopt-A-Highway into our Pickup program.  Adopt-A-Highway fits into our mission of eradicating litter and promoting beautification in our great state.
South Carolina has beautiful landscapes-from lush green mountains to the coastal waterways.  Out communities are surrounded by lakes, rivers, mountains, farmlands, national forests and state parks.  We live here, work here and play here.
Litter has been reduced by 59% over the past ten years.  Unfortunately, though, there are still people who insist on littering.  Our state and local governments do not have the resources available to clean up the litter on our roadways.  Our wonderful volunteers are invaulable to keeping our state clean.  Clean communities are safe communities.  Clean communities are good for tourism and economic development.  Clean communities are a source of pride for all of us who call South Carolina home.
