NC Big Sweep in Asheville

Asheville Greenworks and RiverLink sponsored a big clean-up effort as part of a state-wide Big Sweep on October 1st.
Volunteers from UNCA, Warren Wilson, Haywood Community College, Mars Hill College, and others picked up roadside trash, and tackled a “dump site” under the Smoky Park Highway bridge. A 20yd dumpster was filled to overflowing just from the dump site and over 150 tires were removed from the riverbank.
The planned water-borne cleanup was cancelled due to weather, it being windy and cold this October morning.
