Keep Salisbury streets litter-free! Become part of a network that cleans up miles of city streets through this grassroots litter removal program.

Did you know?

  • Truck beds and tipped roll out bins cause a large percent of litter in our neighborhoods.
  • Litter decreases property values, diminishes community appearance, and promotes the presence of more litter.
  • Wastes on the roadways attract unwanted pests which can lead to roadkill.
