Volunteers needed for statewide Litter Sweep

Posted

RALEIGH – The North Carolina Department of Transportation is looking for volunteers for the Adopt-A-Highway Fall Litter Sweep, which runs Sept. 10-24.

Each April and September, the department calls on volunteers to help remove litter from roadsides. Volunteers from local businesses, schools, nonprofits, churches, and community groups play an important role in keeping North Carolina’s roads clean.

“North Carolina is a wonderful place thanks to the thousands of volunteers who donate their time every year,” says David Harris, state roadside environmental engineer. “The Litter Sweep is a great opportunity to get outdoors with family and friends and work alongside NCDOT to ensure North Carolina remains a beautiful place to live and work.”

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.
