Burke County Chamber of Commerce
2023 Litter Sweep
About the Litter Sweep
The Chamber is looking to unite the community by getting the citizens involved in tackling the issue of litter in Burke County by hosting the 2023 Burke Chamber Litter sweep from April 24th-29th. Everyone is invited to participate!
This Litter Sweep is a great opportunity for families, boy and girl clubs, church groups and more to help improve the cleanliness of the community! It is amazing what we can accomplish when we work together!
The Burke County Chamber of Commerce Litter Sweep will encourage participants to spend more time outside and make a positive impact on the community. The Chamber is excited to be able to provide cash prizes to teams who collect the most litter! If you are interested in participating, please contact the Chamber to sign up and set a time to pick up vests and other supplies.
Each participant will be given an informational sheet that contains details about safety guidelines, litter drop-off sites, competition rules, and more. Teams will go out during the week of September 19th through the 26th and pick up litter throughout Burke County. Afterwards, all teams will deliver their bags to one of the designated drop-off sites. All teams will need to return their team sheet and supplies to the Chamber to qualify for the competition prizes.
Protecting Our Community
The presence of litter throughout a community can impact quality of life, safety, and has environmental consequences. Litter can be moved into water sources and onto roads by varying means. Weather conditions, animals, traffic, and many other factors contribute to litter being dispersed throughout the community as well.
The Burke County Chamber of Commerce cares about this community! This Litter Sweep is an example of how we are striving to serve Burke County. Please consider supporting this weeklong event by signing up for the Chamber Litter Sweep this year! For more information on this event, email Jenna at email@example.com or call (828) 437-3021.
