Volunteers to help cleanup North Carolina’s roadways are needed the last two weeks of April.
The North Carolina Department of Transportation has scheduled the 2023 Spring Litter Sweep April 15-29, one of the agency’s roadside litter removal initiatives.
Residents throughout the state are encouraged to participate in efforts in their community. Contact your local litter management coordinator for more details in your area.
NCDOT’s maintenance crews will dedicate a week of their time to pick up litter and collect orange bags placed on the roadsides by volunteers.
“North Carolina is a beautiful place to live, work and play” said State Roadside Environmental Engineer David Harris in a statement. “Keeping it that way, is only possible through the contribution and efforts of our amazing volunteers. Litter Sweep is a great opportunity to get outdoors and help us keep North Carolina clean and green.”
Volunteers can request gloves, safety vests and bags from their local county maintenance office during the sweep.
