You can report litterbugs to the "Litter Busters" hotline, a 24-hour statewide litter reporting program sponsored by PalmettoPride. The program, made possible by the Department of Natural Resources and the Department of Public Safety, works like this:


You spot someone tossing litter from an automobile. You grab your phone, call 1-877-7LITTER (754-8837) or dial #LB on your AT&T or Alltel phone toll free and report the location, time and the litterbug's license number.


The litterbug will get a courtesy letter from the Department of Public Safety informing him or her that you can't get away with littering in South Carolina. The letter will explain that if a law enforcement officer had witnessed the littering, it could have resulted in a serious fine or even jail time.


And now, there are even easier ways to report litter offenders.  From your Alltel or AT&T cell phones you can call the Litter Busters Hotline by dialing #LB or #52. You can also submit the information online.
