Carteret Big Sweep

The mission of Carteret Big Sweep is to educate the public on litter and motivate them to take action by doing their part to remove litter one cleanup at a time before it can cause harm to humans, wildlife and the environment.

Carteret Big Sweep encourages year-round cleanups.  Trash escapes to the water and land all year and needs to be picked up before it can cause harm to humans and wildlife.  We are always looking for a few good men and women, young and old to help keep Carteret County looking good. Just ask us how you can get started.
