DOT needs volunteers for Fall Litter Sweep
RALEIGH – The N.C. Department of Transportation is seeking volunteers to help clean up trash along roads during the Adopt-a-Highway Fall Litter Sweep on Sept. 14-28.
Each April and September, DOT asks for volunteers to help remove litter from roadsides. Volunteers from local businesses, schools, nonprofit groups, churches and community groups play an important role in keeping roads clean, DOT says.
“Just a few hours of volunteering to clean up our roadsides can make a huge difference,” says David Harris, State roadside environmental engineer. “It’s a fun opportunity to get outdoors with family and friends while helping make sure North Carolina remains a beautiful place to live and work.”
Volunteers are provided with cleanup supplies such as reversible orange and blue trash bags, gloves and safety vests from local DOT county maintenance yards.
