Hundreds of South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) employees spent March 14, collecting litter along highways across South Carolina.
Those efforts resulted in the collection of 22,042 bags of litter during SCDOT’s Spring Spruce Up, an effort to clean our highways and bring attention to the problem of littering.
The total is up from SCDOT’s 2018 Spring Spruce Up, which netted 20,170 bags of litter.
Secretary of Transportation Christy Hall said Thursday’s Spring Spruce Up is a call to action of every South Carolinian to fight litter. She urges all motorists to stash their trash until reaching their destination where it can be disposed of properly.
