Big Sweep 2021: A Sweeping Success

Even hurricanes can't slow down our committed volunteers! After rescheduling from Oct. 1, On Saturday October 8, from 9:00 a.m. - 1:00 p.m. volunteers gathered to make a big difference in our community! We had 210 volunteers help remove litter and debris from 31 locations across High Point! Those volunteers helped remove over 21,410 pounds of trash and 900 pounds of recycling. We also collected over 200 non-perishable food items to aid in the fight against hunger in High Point. Thank you so much everyone and we hope to see you for Great American Cleanup in April!

What is Big Sweep?

High Point Big Sweep focuses on litter removal from our streets, streams, lakes and shorelines, parks and the Greenway. This event also provides a great way to meet new people and help beautify our community! Food and supplies are provided.
