South Carolina ranked dirtiest state in America


According to the 2014 American State Litter Scorecard, South Carolina ranked dead last for the nation’s dirtiest state. South Carolina used to promote the state slogan “Keep it Beautiful South Carolina.” This was an active slogan to prevent littering and encourage recycling, but has since been abandoned. Six years ago the state was ranked 44th.


"Each [South Carolinian] man, woman, child Tosses More Un-recycled Trash per day than most other Americans"
