PalmettoPride, the South Carolina Department of Transportation and the South Carolina Department of Corrections have come together to create Palmetto Prideways – a program dedicated to making our highways a source of state pride.
Palmetto Prideways offers an opportunity for businesses of all sizes to show their civic pride by supporting cleaner highways, cleaner communities and economic development. Companies or individuals are welcome to participate in sponsoring sections of interstate to be cleaned by SC Department of Corrections inmate services. Each sponsored section of interstate will include signage with your company’s name. It’s a great way to show the thousands of drivers who live, work and play in South Carolina that you care about keeping our state beautiful.
Here’s how it works:
- Choose an two-mile stretch of interstate.
- SC Department of Transportation erects signage with your company name or logo.
- SC Department of Corrections will use volunteer crews to remove and properly dispose of litter a minimum of twice a month.
What it costs:
- First year (includes sign production and installation) – $5,165
- Each consecutive year – $4,380
For more information, please contact PalmettoPride.
“T&S believes in supporting a healthy and vibrant world, whether through our water-conserving plumbing fixtures or litter control efforts right here in our back yard,” said Claude Theisen, T&S president and CEO. “We’re proud to call South Carolina home and are honored to help keep it a beautiful, welcoming place.”
“Giving back to the community, through my support of Prideways, has been rewarding in so many ways. PalmettoPride does a great job keeping our interstates clean and litter-free so that visitors and residents alike find the Lowcountry attractive. I also get great exposure for my business. “ — Tony Pope, State Farm Charleston
