High Point Big Sweep has Been Postponed!

Due to the predicted path and effects of Ian, we have decided to postpone High Point Big Sweep. It will now take place next weekend on Oct. 8., 9 a.m. - 1 p.m. More details to follow. We appreciate your patience and understanding and hope you can join us on this new date. 

Additionally, we hope you all stay safe and dry this weekend and our thoughts are with those that have been so terribly effected by the storm so far.

Registration is still available HERE

Big Sweep 2021: A Sweeping Success

On Saturday, Oct. 2 from 9 a.m.-1 p.m.  we had 221 volunteers pick up more than 4,000 pounds of trash and 900 pounds of recycling at 29 different locations!  We also collected more than 150 donated items that were distributed to local food banks to help combat food insecurity. This was a part of the Piedmont Triad Big Sweep, which helped address litter abatement across our entire region. Thank you to everyone who took part

Piedmont Triad Big Sweep


In 2021 High Point Big Sweep happened in partnership with the Piedmont-Triad Big Sweep: a regionwide collaborative litter cleanup initiative. Please go here for more information or to see options available to others across our region. We look forward to see what this partnership holds for the future!

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.
