Update July 6th: Morris Island was indeed much cleaner, as proof here's a link to a Live 5 News video.

Update July 5th: It's the day after and from the sounds of it litter was much less of a problem this year. 

The Post and Courier has a write-up, as does NBC News 2.

Also we just heard back from Charleston Waterkeeper that the situation on Morris Island this year was much better than last year. Expect a link to more info on this soon.  

First reporting: Still reeling from last year's litter-pacolypse on the Fourth of July, Folly Beach is prepping for a crackdown on litter bugs.

A crackdown to the tune of $1,000 if you're caught letting your trash go.

The Post and Courier has a nice write-up on the matter, while Live 5 News has a good video.
