NCDOT’s Fall Litter Sweep Canceled

NCDOT’s Fall Litter Sweep Canceled

NCDOT needs your help after ongoing impacts from COVID-19 have canceled the department’s Fall Litter Sweep. Traditionally scheduled for the last two weeks of April and September, the Litter Sweep is NCDOT’s statewide roadside litter removal initiative. Last year during a Litter Sweep, Adopt-A-Highway groups, NCDOT employees and other volunteers removed nearly 939,000 pounds of litter.

Due to the second cancellation of the year, we need North Carolinians to step up more than ever. Not only is littering illegal, but it’s also bad for the environment and unattractive. Help us remove roadside litter and let’s keep North Carolina beautiful. Please dispose of your litter properly and not out your window and keep items in the back of trucks properly tied down.
