The statewide Fall Litter Sweep begins Saturday. This picture shows volunteers picking up trash in Knightdale during April's cleanup event.

State transportation crews, contractors and volunteers have removed more than 9 million pounds of litter this year, but the next big push starts Saturday.

Running from Saturday to Sept. 25, the Fall Litter Sweep sees volunteers across North Carolina band together to help remove litter from roadsides.

N.C. Department of Transportation crews and contractors are also out in force during the sweep.

Volunteers can contact their local maintenance offices during the sweep to receive gloves, vests and trash bags to aid in their cleanup.

The Nash County Maintenance Yard is located at 3013 US 64-A in Momeyer. The phone number for that office is 252-462-2560.

Once cleanup is finished, volunteers can then contact their maintenance office to swing by and pick up the filled trash bags.

To sign up, visit ncdot.gov/littersweep.

Everyone can do their part to curb litter today by always: Holding on to trash until it can be disposed of properly and securing a vehicle's load before driving.
