As part of the North Carolina Department of Transportation Clean Sweep, the Jackson County Keep Our Mountains Clean and Green Litter Task Force will be holding their annual spring litter pick up event during the weeks of April 16-29, 2023.
To register a group for the litter pick up event call Kim Shuler at (828) 586-7509. Information needed for registration includes group leader name, contact information, the number of people in the group, and the name of the road where trash will be picked up. Please choose only secondary roads for litter pick up; the main highways of 19-23, Hwy 107, and 441 are not to be chosen due to high traffic volumes. The Jackson County Solid Waste Department will provide the supplies of safety vests, gloves, trash tongs, and trash bags, and are available at the Jackson County Transfer Station at 1172 Mineral Springs Road in Sylva.
Everyone is encouraged to participate in the clean-up. This is a wonderful opportunity to show community pride, civic responsibility, and appreciation of the beauty of our mountains.
