Newton holds “Big Sweep” clean-up

NEWTON, NC (May 2, 2012) -- The 2012 "Big Sweep" Newton Citywide Clean-up was held Saturday, April 21.

The event, which attracted more than 45 volunteers, began at the Newton Recreation Center as the clean-up crews were assigned areas of the City.

One of the volunteer groups was the Crossroad Riders 4-H Club, which collected a truckload of trash including televisions and computer monitors that had been discarded on City streets.

The City of Newton expresses its appreciation to the dedicated volunteers who helped make this year's event a success.
