Participants can enter to win prizes by completing the Litter Cleanup Data Sheet https://www.townofchapelhill.org/?splash=https%3a%2f%2farcg.is%2f1irWqe&____isexternal=true on Survey123. The data sheet will be open to the public through April 17. Prizes include reusable straws, cloth grocery bags, water bottles, and more!
Litter in a stream does not always start at the streambank, but it will end up there. If it is on the ground, chances are that it will end up in our local streams and creeks. By cleaning up trash around your neighborhood or business, you are helping protect our local waterways from pollution.
All trash should be bagged and put into your trash can. If you have more trash than will fit in your trash can, take it to one of the Waste and Recycling Centers https://www.townofchapelhill.org/?splash=http%3a%2f%2forangecountync.gov%2f1149%2fWaste-Recycling-Centers&____isexternal=true:
- 1514 Eubanks Rd in Chapel Hill or
- 1616 Ferguson Rd in Chapel Hill.
