If you can spare an hour or two this Saturday, consider cleaning up our world.
Two local towns are holding litter sweep events to beautify our community. As Cary environmental outreach coordinator Sarah Justice says, “Part of the reason Cary continues to be ranked as one of the best places to live, work and enjoy is the natural beauty that surrounds us. And our Spruce volunteers’ efforts are important in protecting the beauty from which we all benefit.”
Cary’s seventh annual Spring Litter Sweep offers shifts from 8 a.m. to 6 p.m., when volunteers like you will remove litter from streets, parks, greenways and neighborhoods. Tools are provided and all are welcome, although volunteers under 15 years old must be accompanied by an adult.
In Morrisville, Saturday has been dubbed the sixth annual Green Day, to promote natural environment, conservation and green initiatives. Morrisville’s event includes document shredding, electronics recycling and a litter sweep beginning at 9 a.m. and running through 2 p.m., at 100 Town Hall Drive.
