Craven County Clean Sweep sponsors three annual clean up events on the first Saturdays of February, May and October to help keep New Bern streets and waterways free of litter. The upcoming one will be Saturday, October 6th, but if that day is not convenient, you can choose another day that fits your schedule!
You can choose to help out in any of these ways: by walking along the streets in your own neighborhood; by using your boat to clean up the waterway of your choice; by meeting with others at Lawson Creek Park on that Saturday at 9am to be assigned a spot or by simply picking any other “trashy” area that’s been bothering you. The amount of time you spend on this is totally up to you – it can be 15 minutes or a few hours. Bags will be provided. For more information, call 633-1477.
Also, there will be a Household Hazardous Waste & Electronics Recycling Event at Craven Community College on Saturday, October 13th from 8am – 1pm. For more information on that, call 633-1564.
