Because we're trashy

Posted By on Tue, Sep 29, 2009 at 3:12 PM

Are you participating in this weekend's Big Sweep?

Organizers behind Mecklenburg County's Big Sweep – which happens Saturday -- typically tell volunteers to expect the unexpected during the annual cleanup of local creeks.

Last year, more than 700 volunteers picked up over 16,000 pounds of trash – including 55 tires, and a set of dentures.

This year's event runs 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Big Sweep organizers provide gloves, trash bags, snacks, and drinks. Volunteers are instructed to wear old clothes, sturdy shoes, a hat, sunglasses, and sunscreen.
