Cumberland County Solid Waste is kicking off a new countywide litter pickup initiative called Cumberland Clean. Volunteers are invited to help clean up areas of the county outside of Fayetteville on Saturday, April 17, between 8 a.m. and noon. The event coincides with the Fayetteville Beautiful clean-up taking place on the same day.
Registration for Cumberland Clean is now open. To sign up, email Karen Hall at or call 910-321-6929 to confirm your attendance and receive a cleanup location. Please specify how many people will be in your group. 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 from April 12-16 between 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.
Volunteers can also pick up their items the day of the event from 8-9:30 a.m. in front of the Judge E. Maurice Braswell Cumberland County Courthouse. Organizers will be in the front parking lot along Gillespie Street and will confirm your cleanup locations. If participants have received their items before the event day, they can go straight to their cleanup location.
Participants are encouraged to wear a mask and practice social distancing while cleaning up areas of the county. Once the cleanup is finished, volunteers are asked to leave their bags at their assigned cleanup site. Solid Waste crews will remove them and take them to one of the County’s container sites.
