Clean Teams

Join the PalmettoPride Clean Team

We are looking for a few thousand good Samaritans to help us create a new social norm that “littering is not okay.” PalmettoPride was created to engage PEOPLE to take responsibility for their communities and eradicate litter. We’ve created PalmettoPride Clean Teams to give citizens a simple framework to facilitate their participation. We need YOU to engage neighbors, family and friends to adopt a special area to monitor and clean up regularly. Clean Teams encompasses Adopt-A-Highway, other state and local initiatives, streams and waterways, and any other area you would like to “adopt”.

We can help identify the right program for your team and provide resources to help you get started.

Clean Team Guidelines and Agreement

Clean Teams Report Card (Required 4 per year)

Clean Team Available Areas:

  • Adopt-A-Highway
  • Neighborhoods
  • Parks
  • Streams and waterways
  • Trails

What is required of Clean Team?

  • 4 litter pickups a year
  • Report your clean up results
  • Monitor your area for illegal dumpsites, graffiti and vandalism. You can report illegal dumpsites on our Trash Tracker app or website.

While we only require 4 litter pickups a year, we encourage your Clean Team to pick up litter when you see it. You may want to recycle your collected trash. Anything and everything is appreciated!

* We will defer to all locally coordinated “adoption” programs where applicable, such as: Adopt-A-Beach, local Keep America Beautiful Adopt-A-Spot programs, Riverkeeper and Covekeeper programs)
