What is Dash for Trash? College of Charleston student teams grab a grocery cart, garbage bags and gloves and dash into downtown Charleston to participate in the annual litter-collecting scavenger hunt. Teams of students scour the city for cigarette butts, used batteries, old hub caps and bagged dog litter to rack up points. Each type of litter has a different value associated with it and teams that find one of the Golden Tickets get to add even more points to their score. The student teams that show the most spirit, collect the most recyclables and accumulate the most points will win prizes.

Dash for Trash is an annual event that is co-sponsored by the College of Charleston Center for Civic Engagement and Keep Charleston Beautiful. Dash for Trash gives students the opportunity to help clean up downtown Charleston while enjoying some friendly competition with other students. Dash for Trash is aimed at preventing future littering through increased awareness of Charleston’s anti-litter laws.
