RECHS "Big Sweep" is September 30

Randolph Early College High School students are participating in "Randolph Big Sweep" in the Worhtville area of Randleman on Saturday, September 30, 2017.

After being inspired by Mr. Bob Langston's presentation on environmental stewardship and being an everyday hero, we are expecting 150+ participants to arrive on the morning of September 30, eager to make a positive impact on the environment. 

In 2015, we had 105 hard-working volunteers and collected 4,500 pounds of trash (about 22 pounds per person, per hour). Mr. Greg Patton, City Planner in Randleman, commented that this was the largest group that he had worked with. Mr. Patton has been leading Big Sweep clean-ups in Randleman since 2004.

In 2016, we had 128 volunteers and collected 4,905 pounds of trash!

This year we are hoping to exceed our number of volunteers and possibly pounds of trash. Currently, we have a campaign going on at Randolph Early College encouraging students to "Join the Green Side".

The clean-up site is a high interest area for the City of Randleman. The city is interested in developing this area for recreational purposes by installing a boat launch (non-motorized). However, some residents currently are inappropriately using this area as a place to dispose wastes.

For more information on Randolph Big Sweep and Keep America Beautiful, please contact Mr. Bob Langston at bob.langston@nczoo.org.

The Big Sweep is Saturday, September 30, 9:00 am to 12:00 pm, at 1053 Castlerock Road in Randleman.
