Litter in Bladenboro

Nearly 489,000 pounds, or close to 245 tons, of trash were picked up by volunteers and NCDOT crews during the Spring Litter Sweep in April. That’s equivalent to 40 average-sized elephants.

Wake County volunteers and crews picked up the most litter, cleaning up nearly 90,000 pounds of trash from roadways.
