The N.C. Department of Transportation's Spring Litter Sweep will take place April 18-May 2. Spring Litter Sweep volunteers will be wearing orange safety vests and filling up orange garbage bags with litter removed from North Carolina roadsides.
“I thank Gov. McCrory for proclaiming these two weeks as NCDOT’s 2015 Spring Litter Sweep, which plays an important role in keeping our roadsides clean and making North Carolina an attractive and environmentally conscious place to live, work and visit,” Transportation Secretary Tony Tata said.
The state litter sweep is being promoted by hundreds of volunteers and NCDOT is anticipating tens of thousands to take part in keeping North Carolina beautiful. These participants include The Department of Public Safety inmate crews, community service workers and civic organizations and adopt- a-highway groups.
