Community Volunteers Needed for East Raleigh Litter Cleanup

Interested in doing a little spring cleaning in your community? Wake County's 86it Anti-Litter Campaign seeks volunteers to participate in a litter cleanup event on Saturday, April 9, in East Raleigh. Volunteers from the local community including businesses, neighborhoods, church groups and sports teams are encouraged to sign up and help keep the East Raleigh community litter-free.

Volunteers will meet at 10 a.m. at the Wake County Commons parking lot, located at 4011 Carya Drive, off Poole Road in Raleigh. Event coordinators will provide volunteers with litter grabbers, gloves and bags and shuttle groups to nearby areas to pick up litter. Litter will be cleaned up along Barwell, New Hope, Poole and Rock Quarry roads.

Volunteers of all ages are welcome to participate, including students looking to receive community service hours for school. Volunteers must sign a liability waiver, and participants under the age of 18 must have the waiver signed by a parent or guardian. To learn more and register, visit www.86it.com/cleanup or call 919-856-6776.

About the 86it Anti-Litter Campaign
In 2008, the Wake County Board of Commissioners adopted a goal to address roadside litter in the county. The Wake County Solid Waste Management Division launched the 86it Anti-Litter Campaign in January 2011 to thoughtfully engage citizen participation and support for a litter-free Wake County.
