Keep Horry County Beautiful supports #Grab a Bucket SC

Contact Keep Horry County Beautiful to grab a bucket and pick up litter in your community. You can participate by picking up one bucket of litter in your neighborhood, park, or other public space. Then put that litter in your trash or recycling bin. Date and sign the bucket with a permanent marker and pass it on to someone else who wants to join the challenge or return it to the County. Feel free to post a photo of you holding the bucket full of litter using #GrabABucketSC and #KeepHorryCountyBeautiful. Don’t forget to report your pickup to keephorrycountybeautiful@horrycounty.org or by calling Katie Moore at (843) 915-5340. You can pick up a bucket at the Horry County Planning & Zoning Office located in the Government & Justice Center, 1301 Second Avenue, in Conway.

Palmetto Pride (Keep South Carolina Beautiful) launched the #Grab a Bucket SC program as a statewide litter pick-up challenge. The program will continue until October 18, 2020, as it coincides with the national Great American Cleanup activities of Keep America Beautiful.
