NCDOT announces 2024 Spring Litter Sweep – OBX Today

The 2024 Spring Litter Sweep is set for April 13-27, 2024, according to a Monday morning announcement from the N.C. Department of Transportation.

​​​Traditionally scheduled for the last two weeks of April and September, Litter Sweep is the N.C. Department of Transportation’s biannual statewide roadside litter removal initiative. Residents throughout the state participate in local efforts to help clean up North Carolina’s roadways.

In addition to volunteers, NCDOT maintenance crews devote one week of their time to pick up litter and collect orange bags placed on the roadsides by volunteer pickups.

Volunteers are provided cleanup supplies, such as reversible orange/blue trash bags, gloves and orange safety vests,​ from their local NCDOT County Maintenance Yard office.
If you find any unusual or interesting items during your litter cleanup, use the hashtag, #StrangeLitter on social media​ so NCDOT can join in on the excitement.​
