Volunteers Needed for Cleanup Sites Across Durham
Recent rains from Hurricane Florence have left litter strewn along creeks and roadsides throughout Durham. Residents ready to help protect fish and wildlife from harmful litter while also boosting the appearance of the community are invited to volunteer now for Durham Big Sweep 2018.
Last year’s annual fall cleanup removed more than 30,000 pounds of trash and recyclables that would have otherwise washed downstream into drinking water reservoirs. Volunteers can sign up now at www.durhambigsweep.org to join an existing cleanup or to register a cleanup site with their own group. If volunteers cannot participate on Saturday, October 6, they are encouraged to pick another day in September or October to roll up their sleeves and help clean up Durham.
