Volunteer Slots Available: Join Think Clean Raleigh on May 22

Be a Part of Our Roadside Litter Cleanup Effort

There is still time to sign up for Think Clean Raleigh on May 22. Come out and help us pick up trash and beautify our city!

“Reports of roadside litter in Raleigh have been increasing, and it’s a major concern for me, our Council members, and the public. So come be part of the solution," said Mayor Mary-Ann Baldwin. “I can’t think of a better time than Earth Day for all of us to come together at different sites throughout the city, roll up our sleeves, and tackle trash.”

Volunteers will work in groups of approximately 15 people, each lead by team leaders who will guide the day’s efforts. City crews from several departments – Transportation, Solid Waste Services, Police, Fire and Water – will be on hand for safety and support. 

Litter Pickup Sites

Based on community reports of litter problems and a Department of Transportation review, a road in each of the City’s five districts have been identified for litter pickup:

•    District A – Bush Street
•    District B – Brentwood Road
•    District C – East Lenoir and East Davie Streets
•    District D – Gorman Street
•    District E – Crabtree Valley Avenue

Useful Information and Tips

Note: This roadside litter pickup event was originally scheduled for April 24 but was rescheduled due to weather.
