About Litter Sweep:
- Litter Sweep is a statewide roadside litter cleanup drive sponsored by the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT). It is usually scheduled for the last two weeks of April and September. The NCDOT Office of Beautification administers the spring and fall Litter Sweeps.
- Volunteers can obtain pick up supplies as orange trash bags, that are reversible to blue bags (for items to be recycled) and also have a drawstring for closure, orange safety vests and gloves from their respective local NCDOT county maintenance office.
- NCDOT maintenance crews devote one week of their time during Litter Sweep to pick up litter and collect orange bags from the roadsides once the groups have completed a cleanup.
- Everyone's participation in Litter Sweep is needed in order to clean up the increasing amount of roadside litter.
