The town of Boone invites and encourages all citizens to join the hundreds of volunteers making a conscious decision to promote community pride, while enhancing Boone’s natural beauty and quality of life.

These dedicated volunteers will be seen along Boone streets and streams for the statewide Litter Sweep during a two-week period, running Sept. 21 through Oct. 5.

The town of Boone kicks off the sweep with the biannual Boone Clean-Up Day on Saturday, Sept. 21, clearing unsightly litter that has accumulated along streets and streams during the summer.

Boone residents may participate by cleaning their premises, placing rubbish curbside and calling the Public Works Department at (828) 268-6230 for free, convenient removal during the sweep.

The town will also be awarding monetary prizes to the winners of the Most Unusual Litter Contest. People may enter the contest by bringing unusual litter found along the roadsides and in the streams within the town limits to the Public Works Center, located at 321 E. King St., on Boone Clean-Up Day. The center also invites participants to drop by from noon to 1:30 p.m. for free refreshments and community fellowship.

Clean-Up Day participants may come by the Public Works Center between 9 a.m. and 2 p.m. to pick up cleaning supplies, or they may choose to pick up supplies prior to the event.

For more information and to register for the event, contact Boone Adopt-A-Street/Stream/Flowerbed coordinator Shannon Isaacs at (828) 268-6230.
