The Southern Pines Appearance Committee recently participated in the Governor's Proclaimed Litter Sweep. The Appearance Committee promoted litter day in front of the town utilities building Friday, September 27th from 9:00am till 1:00pm. The Committee passed out goodies for the children promoting litter pick-up and orange trash bags provided by North Carolina Department of Transportation to encourage residence to help keep our town streets clean and litter free. The Litter Sweep is a statewide roadside litter clean-up drive sponsored by the North Carolina Department of Transportation.
The Southern Pines Appearance Committee is continuously working to help keep our community streets clean and welcoming by encouraging residence and local businesses to participate in the Town of Southern Pines Adopt-A-Street Program. This program is free to anyone interested and you can obtain information on adopting a street by emailing Leslie Habets.
