Spring Litter Sweep is April 29

NEWTON, N.C. (March 21, 2017)—If you’re looking to earn some volunteer service hours and would like to help keep Newton beautiful, join the City of Newton Spring Litter Sweep on Saturday, April 29.

The litter sweep runs from 9 a.m.-noon. The cleanup will begin at Westside Jaycee Park, which is at the intersection of Southwest Boulevard and West J Street.

A light breakfast will be served before groups fan out across the city to areas designated for sprucing up. There’s no need to bring cleanup equipment; all supplies will be provided.

The cleanup is a great opportunity for your club, team, or community group to get together and earn some service hours. Church groups, Scout troops, and school clubs are welcome to participate.

After the cleanup, participants are invited to return to Westside Jaycee Park for a hotdog lunch.

Newton is proud to host the litter sweep in partnership with Keep Catawba County Beautiful. The cleanup coincides with the N.C. Department of Transportation’s Spring Litter Sweep.

If you would like to participate, please contact Alex Fulbright at 828-695-4326 or afulbright@newtonnc.gov.
