In support of Lt. Gov. Pamela Evette's "Grab A Bag SC 2020" cleanup program, the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) plans to deploy employees across the state to pick up roadside litter on Tuesday, Nov. 17, 2020.
SCDOT's "Fall Cleanup" will include hundreds of employees, from headquarters to the county offices, joining together to help pick up litter.
Motorists are asked to use caution and be on the lookout for SCDOT employees when driving during litter clean-up operations for the safety of everyone involved.
Lt. Gov. Evette kicked off the 2020 litter pickup program in October at Clemson Clemson University with PalmettoPride and the university's Solid Green campaign. This statewide initiative is a safe litter pickup event that encourages South Carolinians to help clean up litter, one bag at a time.
Transportation Secretary Christy Hall said, "We are glad to do our part to help keep South Carolina looking great and support Lieutenant Governor Everett's program. Let's all join together and make sure littering does not impact our state or economy."
Hall said SCDOT employees are planning another statewide litter cleanup day in spring 2021.
