North Carolina news

RALEIGH, N.C. (WNCN) — This spring is your chance help clean up North Carolina roadways.

The North Carolina Department of Transportation announced its annual spring litter sweep and is asking volunteers, businesses, and community groups to come out in April to help pick up roadside trash.

The spring litter sweep is happening April 11-25.

“Every day more people make North Carolina their home or do business here, said David Harris, NCDOT’s roadside environmental engineer. “With that comes increased litter and trash on our roads. We need others to help us keep our state beautiful and safe, and it starts with each of us doing our part.”

Last year, Adopt-A-Highway groups, NCDOT employees and other volunteers removed nearly 939,000 pounds of litter during the spring litter sweep.

If you volunteer, you will be given gloves and safety vests, as well as cleaning supplies.

Sign up today by contacting your local litter management coordinator.
