Sumter Rotary is responsible for picking up the litter along the roadside of Wesmark Boulevard from Broad Street West to Wilson Hall road. “Roadside Clean-ups” are scheduled several times a year, early on Saturday mornings. It is great fellowship and a great service to our community.
South Carolina has beautiful landscapes – from the lush green mountains to the coastal waterways. Our communities are surrounded by lakes, rivers, mountains, farmlands, national forests and state parks. We live here, work here and play here.
Litter has been reduced by 62% over the past ten years. Unfortunately, though, there are still people who insist on littering. Our state and local governments do not have the resources available to clean up the litter on our roadways. Our wonderful volunteers are invaluable to keeping our state clean. Clean communities are safe communities. Clean communities are good for tourism and economic development. Clean communities are a source of pride for all of us who call South Carolina home.
