Spring Litter Sweep Coming Up In North Carolina

As spring starts, the N.C. Department of Transportation (NCDOT) is gearing up for its annual Spring Litter Sweep which will run from April 13-27.

The Spring Litter Sweep, one of NCDOT’s roadside litter removal initiatives, utilizes the power of community engagement to tackle the issue of roadside litter. During the two-week period, residents are encouraged to participate in local efforts to help clean up North Carolina’s roads.

In addition to volunteers, NCDOT maintenance crews devote one week of their time picking up litter and collecting trash bags that are filled by volunteers. People interested in volunteering during the Spring Litter Sweep can request gloves, safety vests and bags from their local county maintenance offices.

Those interested in taking part in the cleanup should reach out to your local litter management coordinator to get started. You can also check out the Litter Sweep webpage for all of the details on this event.
