High Point Big Sweep is an annual litter cleanup event held on the first Saturday in October. Volunteers throughout the city work together to clean-up streams, rivers, ponds, and lakes of litter/debris.

While the focus of this cleanup is water based we also have volunteers that cleanup roadways and areas in which litter can be washed down into water ways and bodies of water.
