DOC NC holds quarterly litter sweeps at Indian Creek Playground. The litter sweeps help raise awareness for the environment as they clean up the community and educate kids on the importance of sustainability. Children who attend the litter sweep gain insight into recyclable materials vs non-recyclable materials and carry this information over to their homes. Youth are empowered by the litter sweeps as they are given an opportunity to connect to other youth of the community at the litter sweep.
