Sign up for Cumberland Clean Litter Pickup Event

Aug 27, 2021

Cumberland County Solid Waste is cleaning up outside Fayetteville on Saturday, Sept. 18 as part of their countywide litter pickup initiative called “Cumberland Clean.”

This is the second time a countywide litter pickup has taken place. Volunteers are invited to help clean up areas of the county outside of Fayetteville on Saturday, Sept. 18, between 8 a.m. and noon. The event coincides with the Fayetteville Beautiful clean-up and Spring Lake clean-up events.

Registration for Cumberland Clean is now open. Email Karen Hall at khall@co.cumberland.nc.us or call 910-321-6929 to sign up and confirm your attendance and receive a clean-up location. Please specify how many people will be in your group and if there will be youth attending. All participants will receive a trash bag, reusable litter bag, an event T-shirt, water and hand sanitizer. Registered volunteers can pick up these items before the event at the Ann Street Landfill between Sept. 13 - 17 from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

Event Day

Volunteers can also pick up their items the day of the event from 8:00-9:30 a.m. in front of the Judge E. Maurice Braswell Cumberland County Courthouse. Organizers will be in the front parking lot along Gillespie Street to confirm your clean-up locations. Participants who received their items before the event day can go directly to their cleanup location.

Participants are encouraged to wear a mask and practice social distancing while cleaning up areas of the county. Volunteers are asked to leave their bags at their assigned clean-up site when they are finished. Solid Waste crews will remove them and take them to a county container site.
