Bust a Litterbug

You can report litterbugs anytime through the statewide "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 immediately, call 1-877-7LITTER (754-8837) and report the location, time and the litterbug's license number.  You can also report a violation via the PalmettoPride Trash Tracker App or directly from their online form.


The litterbug will receive a 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.
