Lexington County’s Solid Waste Management Litter Crew will work to clean it up. Responses will not be sent from the automated email system but requests will be noted and added to the crew's work schedule.
Litter Free Lexington County SC, is a new initiative in 2022 hosted by Lexington County Department of Solid Waste Management that aims to connect volunteers interested in helping cleanup litter in the county to those who work with litter management on a daily basis. The program hopes to provide resources for municipalities and a network for local volunteers to get involved in their neighborhoods throughout the county.
End the summer with a splash by joining the KMB team for a cleanup on the shorelines and islands of Lake Murray! Volunteers with boats are encouraged to travel by boat to clean islands. Volunteers without their own boat will be invited to clean the shores, OR travel to islands on Lake Murray in boats! All supplies will be provided, and volunteers will receive a thank-you gift, door prizes, plus entry to win grand prizes including jet ski and pontoon boat rentals! Grab a friend or neighbor, form a group, and we'll see you on the lake! email firstname.lastname@example.org for more information
If you have a group willing and able to pick up litter just four times a year for two years, please contact Keep the Midlands Beautiful at 803-733-1139 or email@example.com to adopt a highway or waterway. Supplies will be provided. Go to https://keepthemidlandsbeautiful.org/ to learn more.

Litter, defined as misplaced solid waste, is harmful to Lexington County and to South Carolina. Litter endangers our environment, our wildlife, and our economy. It pollutes our neighborhoods, decreases property values, and destroys our county’s natural beauty. Litter can also lead to increased crime; it signals to criminals that residents don’t care what happens in their neighborhood and makes the area more vulnerable.
Lexington County Solid Waste Management works hard to keep waste in its place, and asks that you do the same.
