NCDOT Litter Sweep - Biannual Statewide Roadside Litter Cleanup

Litter Sweep is the N.C. Department of Transportation's statewide roadside litter removal initiative in which volunteers participate in local efforts to help clean up 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.

  • In Spring 2017, Litter Sweep runs April 15-29.
  • In Fall 2017, Litter Sweep runs Sept. 16-30.

Important Litter Sweep Links:

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

Litter Sweep and NC Department of Public Safety and the "Litter Free NC" campaign.

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.
