Welcome Visitors! to this Helpful Site
At The Scorecard, our goal is to educate ALL on dangers, consequences of littering/dumping on public and private properties. ILLEGAL Littering and Dumping breeds diseases, HARMS landscapes, KILLS HUMANS, PETS, WILDLIFE.
Top "Profile" Litterers are YOUNG People, ages 16-25--prone or most willing to ILLEGALLY litter!
Because studies show illegal littering tends to occur at or near transportation routes used by the public (roads, highways. sidewalks, train tracks, trails, etc.), GOVERNMENT is responsible by LAW to clean those areas. The Scorecard focuses on America's PUBLIC PROPERTIES (SPACES) and how they compare among our 50 states.
