Join Cary’s Fall Litter Sweep this Saturday

Cary, NC — If you’ve been looking for a way to help out your community and get out of the house a bit, this Saturday’s Fall Litter Sweep may be the perfect opportunity.

From 8 AM – 1 PM, there will be a series of four 2-hour shifts dedicated to cleaning up different areas throughout Cary. This event is hosted through the Town of Cary’s Spruce Program, which connects community members to one-time volunteer opportunities in waste reduction, beautification, and environmental service in Cary.

Since 2010, Spruce volunteers have collected over 218,499 pounds of litter from our streets, parks, and trails. That is equivalent to 109 tons, or the weight of about 24 elephants.
