Carteret Big Sweep

Carteret Big Sweep is Carteret County's effort to educate the public on litter and teach how they can take action by doing their part to make a difference. 

Carteret Big Sweep encourages year-round cleanups.  Trash escapes to the water and land all year and needs to be picked up before it can cause harm to humans and wildlife.  We are always looking for a few good men and women, young and old to help keep Carteret County looking good. Just ask us how you can get started.

Volunteer Drive

Albemarle Commission’s Senior Nutrition Program is seeking Meals on Wheels volunteers for routes in Camden, Chowan, Currituck, Dare, Gates, Hyde, Pasquotank, Perquimans, Tyrrell and Washington counties in North Carolina. There is an urgent need for volunteers in Chowan and Pasquotank counties, who have a waiting list for potential clients due to lack of volunteers. Routes start at 11 am, Monday through Friday. Each route takes about an hour to complete. Volunteering as little as one day a month makes a huge impact for our home bound seniors. For more information on becoming a volunteer, please contact Laura Rollinson, Volunteer Coordinator, at (252)-404-7091 or
