Big Sweep 2021

On Saturday, Oct. 2 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.  we had 221 volunteers pick up more than 4,000 pounds of trash and 900 pounds of recycling at 29 different locations!  We also collected more than 150 donated items that were distributed to local food banks to help combat food insecurity. This was a part of the Piedmont Triad Big Sweep, which helped address litter abatement across our entire region. Thank you to everyone who took part and we can't wait to see you at our next large cleanup: Winter Wipeout!
