Hit the Road with Road Warriors in McCormick, South Carolina

South Carolina is a beautiful state.  And it takes the cooperation of all residents and visitors to keep it that way.  Springtime is clean-up time and May is the month when South Carolinians get together to make improvements throughout our state.  Keep South Carolina Beautiful is a state affiliate of the Keep America Beautiful campaign and a division of PalmettoPride.  The mission of Keep South Carolina Beautiful is to encourage all individuals to take responsibility for enhancing their local communities. 

In McCormick County, the Road Warriors are a part of the South Carolina Department of Transportation (SCDOT) Adopt-a-Highway program.  Originally formed by community members from Savannah Lakes Village, residents periodically check county and local roads for litter with bags, vests and trash bags provided by the SCDOT.   This Road Warriors program has received PalmettoPride and SCDOT recognition for excellence!

The Great Amercan Clean-up in South Carolina also takes place every March - May.  It's a time when thousands of communities from throughout our nation work on projects with the goal of improving quality of life.  As part of the largest clean-up campaign in the country, volunteers in South Carolina clean up neighborhoods, parks, roads and waterways.  They plant thousands of flowers, shrubs, and trees; they recycle thousands of pounds of plastic, cans, paper, batteries, and used tires; and, they educate thousands of citizens on the effects of litter on our environment.

Hi Mary:

The rest of the states should take a lesson from South Carolina.

 Have a great day!

Toula - Unfortunately, there are many careless people who litter so that volunteers have to go out and clean the roads and parks!  Our state does keep after it!  Thanks!

Kristin - Visit any time.  It's a beautiful state with many nice people here!  Have a great week!

Good information.  I have lived in NC and SC my entire life so I have to say they are both great states.  Good job on your post.

Sounds like a worthwhile program.  We have the 'adopt a road' program here in Florida.  We have our little section that we try to keep nice and clean.

Hi Gabe - Isn't it a shame that groups like this are necessary!  There are so many other causes that could use the time and energy.  Thanks!

Thanks Kevin!  We were in Columbia yesterday and noticed how beautiful that city is in the spring!  You're right - it is a beautiful state.
