Lakeside Litter Sweep

Lake Murray Volunteers

End the summer with a splash while making a difference in our community!  Join Keep the Midlands Beautiful, Dominion Energy, PalmettoPride and our other 20+ event partners in our effort to clean up Lake Murray.  The 2022 Lakeside Litter Sweep will be held on Saturday, September 17 which is the statewide Beach Sweep/River Sweep day sponsored by the SC Department of Natural Resources.


Choose one of following three check-in/out locations:

  • Southshore Marina in Leesville
  • Lighthouse Marina in Chapin
  • Dreher Island State Park in Prosperity


Volunteers may choose to pick up litter...

  • On land around the check-in location,
  • On islands using your own boat,
  • From the lake's surface using your own kayak or canoe,
  • From islands with help from a free boat ride from AquaFun Boat Rentals & Tours and other event partners (NOT currently available from Dreher Island State Park),
  • From beneath the water's surface if participating with a dive team.


Pre-registration is required by Sep. 10th.  Registered volunteers will receive a t-shirt, sandwich lunch, thank you gift and entry for larger prizes from local businesses.


Spread the word, bring a friend and let's have some fun while cleaning up the Jewel of the South!
