Hello Big Sweep Volunteers and Enthusiasts across Wake County!
FINAL 2015 SPRING RESULTS
WOW — look what good you did! When we add up all the litter picked up at
all our Big Sweep sites across Wake County…it totals 634 gung-ho
volunteers removing nearly 9,000 pounds from 27 watershed sites in five
Wake County towns. Fantastic!

Big Sweep Volunteers
for giving of your time & energy to improve our waterways!
These numbers are important because they reflect your hard work in making
our watersheds cleaner, safer, and all the more beautiful!
Our last spring cleanup, Canoes For A Cause, was a huge success Sat., June
13th at Lake Johnson Park in Raleigh! Over 107 volunteers worked hard to
remove 845 pounds of debris out of the lake and surrounding woods. Their
hard work was rewarded with goodie bags, live music, and a delicious lunch
provided by Jacob Leinenkugel Brewing Company of WI. Warm hospitality was
provided by employees from our local Mims Distributing and Miller-Coors
companies. Keep NC Beautiful conducted online registration. Thank you to
all our generous Sponsors and helpful Partners!
