"Welcome Visitors to YOUR 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 "Profiled Litterers" are YOUNG People, Ages 16-25--MOST PRONE OR WILLING to ILLEGALLY litter/dump waste, ANYPLACE!!
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.
