Every April and September, NCDOT asks volunteers across the state to help remove litter from roadsides.
This year, NCDOT’s annual Fall Litter Sweep will run from Sept. 11-25.
During the Litter Sweep, volunteers across the state take time out of their schedules to collect trash along North Carolina’s roadways. NCDOT crews and contractors also redouble their efforts during the sweep.
During this year’s Spring Litter Sweep, a record-setting 1.4 million pounds of litter were picked up in those two weeks alone. In addition, NCDOT is on pace to make 2021 a record-setting year for total roadside litter pickups, surpassing the 10.5 million pounds of trash that was collected in 2019.
Everyone can do their part to help prevent litter from collecting on roadsides by always:
• Securing your load before driving.
• Never throwing thrash out of your vehicle’s window.
