NC Dept. of Transportation Fall Litter Sweeps--Seeking volunteers


The N.C. Department of Transportation is looking for volunteers for the 2023 Fall Litter Sweep, which runs September 16-30, 2023.

Scheduled for the last two weeks of September, the Litter Sweep is one of NCDOT's roadside litter removal initiatives. Residents throughout the state are encouraged to participate in local efforts to help clean up North Carolina's roadways. NCDOT's maintenance crews also dedicate one week of their time to pick up litter and collect orange bags placed on the roadsides by volunteers.

Volunteers can request gloves, safety vests and bags from their local county maintenance office during the sweep. People looking to participate should contact their local litter management coordinator.
