The Commission for a Clean County (CCC) will be doing a hands-on Waynesville litter pickup at 9 a.m. Saturday, May 10, along 276 Pigeon St., Waynesville. Volunteers are needed.

The group will meet a little before 9 a.m. in the parking lot across the street from the Pigeon Community Center.  Bags, gloves and vests will be provided to all volunteers.

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 present schedule for pickups is:  June 14 in Canton; July 12, a county road; Aug. 9 in Clyde; and Sept. 13, Maggie Valley. If October weather is decent, the group is available for special requests.

Litter pickups are done in a light drizzle, but are cancelled if there is a heavy rain or electrical storm.

456-3575 or secretary JoAnna Swanson at 452-1550.
