Red Truck with secured load in the back

This is a reminder of the “Secure Your Load” campaign to educate citizens on the importance of reducing unintentional littering by properly securing your load on your vehicle. To help facilitate this effort, citizens will notice new signage near the entrance of the Pamlico County Transfer Station (3192 NC 306 North, Grantsboro, NC 28529) and near the recycling convenience centers. Pamlico County is planning a second tarp distribution event on April 3, 2021, from 7:30 a.m. to 12:00 p.m., at the Pamlico County Transfer Station for those motorists who need a tarp to help cover their load. If you have questions about this event, you can contact Garry Cooper at 252-745-2094, garry.cooper@pamlicocounty.org or Daniel Simpson at 252-745-4121, daniel_simpson@ncsu.edu.

Pamlico County is also planning a Clean Sweep event for April 24, 2021, for volunteers who would like to help collect litter along our roadways or other public areas. Pamlico County will provide safety vests, gloves, trash bags, and extended reach grabbers to aid volunteers. Pamlico County will also help coordinate with these volunteers to dispose of collected litter. If you are interested in volunteering for this event or would like to learn more, please contact Garry Cooper at 252-745-2094, garry.cooper@pamlicocounty.org or Daniel Simpson at 252-745-4121, daniel_simpson@ncsu.edu.
