As part of its Keep IT Beautiful initiative, the Town of Indian Trail is hosting its annual Fall Litter Sweep on Saturday, Sept. 16, from 7:30-11 a.m.
The Town is looking for 50 volunteers to help pick up litter on that day. Registration is required. Those interested can sign up using the Volunteer Application Form at http://bit.ly/4093ofc. The registration deadline is Sept. 13.
Volunteers will meet at the Indian Trail Town Hall (315 Matthews-Indian Trail Road) at 7:30 a.m. for a light breakfast and safety meeting. Litter pick-up will begin at 8 a.m. The Town will supply the necessary equipment, including bags, pickers, buckets, and safety vests. Volunteers must be 14 or older.
“Indian Trail is a beautiful place to live, and we want to keep it that way,” said Adam McLamb, director of public works. “Join us as we work to Keep IT Beautiful and register for the Fall Litter Sweep. During the Spring Litter Sweep in April, 18 volunteers picked up 750 pounds of litter. Imagine what we could do with 50 people! I would like to thank the Indian Trail Division of the Union County Sheriff’s Office, who will be keeping our volunteers safe during the sweep.”
If you are unable to participate in the litter sweep but would like to organize a litter pick-up of your own, you can borrow the supplies from the Town Hall. Please call the Public Works Department at 704-821-5401 to make the arrangements.
