Great American Cleanup events scheduled now through May

A cleaner, greener, more livable Rocky Mount requires a community coming together to take out the trash….more specifically, the litter. To help with this year’s Great American Cleanup, Keep America Beautiful of Nash & Edgecombe counties is seeking 1,000 volunteers to participate in various activities, which are running now through May 31.

This year’s theme, “Clean Your Block Party,” encourages and empowers all volunteers and participants to take what they learn from experiencing a public space Great American Cleanup event and bring it home to organize an event on their own block.

“This year’s events are a great way to get everyone involved with cleaning up our area, from our counties to our cities and communities,” said Cornelia McGee, coordinator for Keep America Beautiful of Nash and Edgecombe counties. “It takes the efforts of a community to keep a community beautiful.”

Events include Nash County Recycles Day, the annual Riverkeeper Cup Cleanup Challenge and the Spring Litter Sweep.

For dates and times of each event or to register, please contact Keep America Beautiful of Nash & Edgecombe counties at (252) 467-4960. More information can also be found at rockymountnc.gov/kab.
