NCDOT Litter Sweep - Biannual Statewide Roadside Litter Cleanup

Litter Sweep is the North Carolina Department of Transportation (NCDOT) statewide roadside litter removal initiative. Volunteers are requested to locally participate in the Governor proclaimed "Litter Sweep" to help beautify their communities by removing litter from North Carolina's roadways.

Volunteers are provided cleanup supplies such as orange trash bags, gloves, and orange safety vests from their respective local NCDOT county maintenance office. A phone listing of local NCDOT maintenance offices can be found in the "Forms" link below as can Litter Sweep safety and promotional materials.

Litter Sweep is traditionally scheduled for the last two weeks of April and September.

  • This fall, Litter Sweep is from September 19 - October 3, 2015.

  • In 2016, Litter Sweep dates are April 16-30 and Sept. 17 - Oct. 1, 2016.

Important Litter Sweep Links:
  • Forms

  • Litter Sweep Volunteer Cleanup Procedures

  • AAH Safety Video

  • Meth Lab Waste Recognition Video by the Colorado DOT (7.53 minutes).

  • For more information, please call the Litter Sweep Hotline (800-331-5864).

    In addition to volunteers, the NCDOT maintenance crews devote one week of their time during Litter Sweep to pick up litter and collect orange bags from the roadsides once volunteers have completed their cleanups.

    If you are interested in sponsoring litter removal along North Carolina Interstate highways, please visit the Sponsor-A-Highway Program webpage.
