Big Sweep
Big Sweep Hopes For a Transforming Experience

The Big Sweep fall cleanup is part of the International Coastal Cleanup, a global effort to rid our environment of debris. Approximately 70 countries all around the world participate in the International Coastal Cleanup. All 100 counties in North Carolina participate in the Big Sweep component of the International Coastal Cleanup.

N.C. Big Sweep, an award-winning 501(c)(3) nonprofit whose mission is a litter-free environment, was founded in 1987 as Beach Sweep, a coastal cleanup with 1,000 volunteers. That cleanup expanded inland and was renamed in 1989 to become North Carolina Big Sweep, the nation’s first statewide waterway cleanup. Its mission also expanded from litter-free waters to a litter-free environment about five years ago. During its 20-year history, more than 230,000 volunteers have retrieved over eight million pounds of debris from North Carolina’s environment. N.C. Big Sweep’s board of directors is comprised of individuals who represent several North Carolina’s businesses, other nonprofit organizations and governmental agencies.
