On October 1, 2016, you can make a difference in Nash and Edgecombe counties by participating in the Twin Counties Big Sweep Challenge. The event is a way for participants to clean up or improve sites in the area. Keep America Beautiful (KAB) of Nash and Edgecombe counties will provide the necessary supplies for volunteers.

The Big Sweep Challenge will take place Saturday, October 1, 2016, from 8am to 12pm in Rocky Mount and Tarboro, North Carolina.

Volunteers will meet in Rocky Mount at the Battle Park boat ramp, located at the end of Battle Park Lane.

Shiloh Landing at 2233 US Highway 258 North will be the meeting location in Tarboro NC.

“This is an opportunity to rid the Twin Counties of litter along our land and waterways, making this area more attractive to our residents, visitors and potential business owners,” says Cornelia McGee, KAB coordinator.

While the Twin Counties Big Sweep Challenge is a one-day event, the Twin Counties Big Sweep is an ongoing initiative which runs from Friday, September 16, 2016, to Sunday, October 16, 2016. Big Sweep participants may select a site for cleanup.
