On Saturday, June 14, a total of 13 volunteers with the Commission for a Clean County met in Canton to do a major litter pick-up at exit 31. Miles Hendler-Voss, 7, participated and is the youngest volunteer to ever participate in a CCC clean up. Hendler-Voss is the son of Canton’s new town manager, Seth Hendler-Voss.

Led by county Commissioner Bill Upton, a member of the CCC board, the group was dispersed to all four exit ramps.

Approximately 13 orange bags were filled with the trash found at the exits.

The CCC, an environmental cleanliness board, performs this service for each town in Haywood County and for a county road. The group works from May through September or October, depending on weather.

The season’s remaining schedule for pickups, is: July 12, a county road; Aug. 9 in Clyde; and Sept. 13, Maggie Valley. Depending on the weather in October, the group may be available for a special request by a town or the county.

For further information about the CCC, call Chairman Dr. Bill Skelton at 456-3575 or secretary JoAnna Swanson at 452-1550.
