As the NC Department of Transportation (NCDOT) Fall Litter Sweep comes to a close, the towns of Carrboro and Chapel Hill invite residents to join town staff for a litter clean up on from 9 a.m. to 12 noon Saturday, Sept. 24.
Volunteers will clean up two sites along NC Highway 54, one on the Carrboro side and one on the Chapel Hill side.
The Chapel Hill group will meet at 8:30 a.m. at the overflow parking lot at The Exchange at Meadowmont (1414 Raleigh Rd., Chapel Hill, NC 27517) and the Carrboro group will meet at 8:30 a.m. at 602 Jones Ferry Road, Carrboro, NC 27510.
Staff will provide gloves, trash bags, trash grabbers, first-aid kits, and a water bottle refill station. Bring yourself, closed-toed shoes, and a water bottle. Waterproof boots, long pants, and long-sleeved shirts are recommended since litter cleanups can be messy.
To sign up, fill out the sign-up sheet at https://survey123.arcgis.com/share/b8acd781569545a3ae09c5b3fb5d5a75 Waivers will be completed at the event Saturday morning.
