Join Durham’s Annual Community Litter Cleanup!

Throughout the month of October, the Durham community will come together to clean up litter across the County. Hundreds of volunteers will team up to clean up thousands of pounds of litter from our local parks, neighborhoods, stream banks, lake shores, parking lots, school groups, workplaces, and streets in Durham.

In just a few hours, you can make a BIG difference in our community appearance as part of Durham Big Sweep. Join today at


Durham Big Sweep is sponsored by the Durham County Soil and Water Conservation District, Keep Durham Beautiful and the City of Durham Stormwater Services. Additional support is provided for this community cleanup by City of Durham Neighborhood Improvement Services and Durham County Government General Services.

Come be a part of helping us Sweep the Bull City Clean of Litter!
