  • Trash NOT to pack out when you find it: meth lab waste & how to recognize it!


    We can't thank you enough for helping to keep South Carolina's national forests clean by packing out litter when you find it! But if you come across items like these, PLEASE, for your safety, leave them untouched and report the location as accurately as you can to the district ranger station or to local law enforcement. These are typical items associated with mobile meth lab dumps, (as well as tubing, duct tape, gas additives, common diet or cold pill packages, batteries and solvents). Meth lab waste can be very toxic through absorption and inhalation, and can also be an explosive hazard. Please be safe! Stay clear and report the dump location.
