City-county Litter Sweep is Saturday on Upward Road

"It's litter sweep time," County Commissioner Rebecca McCall said at a meeting of the Board of Commissioners earlier this month.

McCall, who has promoted a campaign to clean up Henderson County roadways this year, announced that Henderson County and Hendersonville are teaming up for a litter pickup along Upward Road, a gateway to Flat Rock and Hendersonville. Volunteers should meet at 8:30 a.m. at the shopping center (Subway) on Upward Road at South Allen Road. The litter pickup is on the last day of the fall statewide Litter Sweep that runs Sept. 11-25. The city will send a garbage truck and the NCDOT will provide bags and other supplies needed for the litter sweep.

"I hope everybody can come out," McCall said. "We'll be there for an hour or two at the most to clean up one of the entrances to our town and our county."
