2023 Trash Trap Wrap Up!Posted on December 21st, 2023
The nor’easter that hit the East Coast last weekend dumped plenty of rain on North Carolina. With rain, comes runoff. And with runoff, comes lots of trash. This week, we wrapped up our Litter-Free Rivers program for 2023 with some much-needed clean-outs of our trash traps in Kinston, Washington, New Bern and Raleigh. We’re looking forward to the New Year, bringing on more volunteers to help keep our waterways litter-free, and installing more trash traps in Greenville and Rocky Mount! Meanwhile, here’s a look at what the trash traps prevented from flowing into the Neuse and Tar-Pamlico this week.
