NCDOT Litter Sweep - Biannual Statewide Roadside Litter Cleanup
Litter Sweep is the North Carolina Department of Transportation statewide roadside litter removal initiative. Volunteers are requested to locally participate in 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.
