"Welcome Visitors..Its 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" in USA (see left top Image):

--Cigarette Smokers

--YOUNG People, Ages 16-25

--Fast Foodies

--Construction/Groundskeepers Workers!

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.
