RALEIGH – The N.C. Department of Transportation needs volunteers to help clean up trash along roads during the Adopt-A-Highway Spring Litter Sweep from April 13-27.

Each April and September, NCDOT calls on volunteers from across North Carolina to help remove litter from roadsides. Volunteers from local businesses, schools, non-profits, churches and community groups play an important role in keeping North Carolina’s roads clean.

“North Carolina is a more beautiful place thanks to the thousands of volunteers who donate their time every year,” says David Harris, State Roadside Environmental engineer. “We cannot do this alone, and their efforts ensure our state is a great place to visit and live.”

Volunteers are provided with clean-up supplies such as reversible orange and blue trash bags, gloves and safety vests from local NCDOT County Maintenance Yard offices.

Last year, volunteers, Adopt-A-Highway groups and NCDOT employees removed more than 500,000 pounds of litter during the Spring litter sweep.

Visit the Litter Sweep webpage for more information. Questions can be directed to Kim Wheeless at (919) 707-2974.
