Other than being a serious safety hazard, it’s estimated that about half the litter along North Carolina’s roads is created this way.
Mecklenburg County’s Solid Waste division and Keep Mecklenburg Beautiful have come up with a solution – why not cover that load with a tarp? They’ll even give you one for free.
The Annual Tarp Give Away, part of the Great American Clean Up, is now under way. Jake Wilson, executive director of Keep Mecklenburg Beautiful, just delivered several hundred tarps to Mecklenburg County's Compost Central
location at 5631 West Blvd, Charlotte, NC 28208.
'We want to thank North Carolina Keep America Beautiful and the North Carolina Department of Transportation for their kind donations so we can help make a difference to the beauty of our county,” Wilson said.
Tarps are available while supplies last. Visit Compost Central or wipeoutwaste.com
for times and more information.
