LAURENS COUNTY, S.C. - Two controversial signs urging people to stop littering in Laurens have been moved after the city was asked to remove them from state right of ways by the South Carolina Department of Transportation.

The signs reading "Don't Litter Jack," then showing a cartoon image of a donkey were later installed in a neighborhood that requested them.

Officials with the City of Laurens say they planned to rotate the signs around the area anyway.

The Street and Sanitation department says they've seen an 80 percent decrease in litter on East Farley Avenue since the signs went up, according to the mayor.
