More than 120 volunteers collected 95 cubic yards of trash from our roadsides at the annual Plateau Pickup on April 15.
Volunteers began the day at Kelsey-Hutchinson Founders Park as they were assigned geographic areas of the plateau – throughout downtown Highlands and highways 64, 28 and 106.
Upon conclusion, all gathered for lunch back at the park.
“Each year the momentum seems to grow for this event,” said Kaye McHan, executive director of the Highlands Chamber of Commerce/Visit Highlands. “It shows how much our local residents truly care about their community.”
Plateau Pickup is organized by the Highlands Chamber of Commerce/Visit Highlands, NC with partnership and logistical support provided by Macon County Sheriff’s Office, US Forest Service, NC Department of Transportation, NC State Patrol, Town of Highlands, and Highlands Police Department.
