I saw someone throw litter out of their car. Who do I report this to?

If you see someone littering from a vehicle, you can report them to the statewide Litter Busters Hotline at 1-877-7LITTER (1-877-754-8837). Have the following information ready: Item littered, Time, Car's location, Make and model of car, and License plate number. An officer will take down the information and track the owner of the vehicle through the state Department of Public Safety. The owner of the vehicle will receive a notice that he or she was witnessed littering and they will be reminded that there are stiff penalties for littering in South Carolina. This letter is just a courtesy letter and does not constitute a ticket of any sort.
