Avery County Clean Sweep is set for this Saturday.

On Saturday, March 20, the Avery County Sheriff’s Office, Avery County Emergency Management and many more community organizations, churches, civic clubs, colleges and families are coming together to help clean up the 526 miles of roadway in the county.

The effort still needs volunteers, and interested parties can sign up by emailing This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it., to whom they can provide their name, cell phone number, email address and the zone they would like to help clean up.

Volunteers will then receive more specific information on how they can pick up trash bags and other equipment once they are assigned a segment of the county.
