CHARLESTON, S.C. (WCSC) – Charleston County residents are encouraged to come together on May 4 to help keep our highways clean and beautiful.
Charleston County Adopt-A-Highway will hold a litter cleanup on Saturday, May 4. Volunteers can pick up supplies on Wednesday, May 1 from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. at S.C. Department of Transportation’s Charleston Maintenance facility located at 2401 Maintenance Way in North Charleston.
Volunteers will spend the day picking up trash along Charleston County highways, so it is important drivers keep an eye out.
“On the cleanup day, drivers are asked to be especially alert and mindful of pedestrians who are working to beautify our surroundings and protect our environment,” said Donna Gueldner, Chairman of Community Pride, Inc. of Charleston County.
In 2012, more than 50,000-pounds of litter was collected form primary and secondary roads, according to Adopt-A-Highway.
