February 10-28, 2018

Litter is so much more visible during the winter months; which makes it seem like there is so much more - on exit ramps, at intersections, in ditches, along railroads, around shopping centers, in creeks and streams, all along wooded areas. This cleanup is an opportunity to clean up areas where the litter is much more visible and accessible.

In the coming weeks, as you see littered areas that need cleaning up, please report these areas to Greensboro Beautiful using the link below. Reported and known sites will be posted to an online map where volunteer groups can choose which sites to clean up. Greensboro Beautiful will provide all cleanup supplies, and our goal is to have all sites cleaned up between February 10th and 28th.
