We hate litter. There is no reason for a civilized place to have an issue with litter, but Eden, like so many communities, does.
Please help us combat unsightly trash around our beautiful city.
There are a few ways you can help:
The North Carolina Department of Transportation has a fantastic program - Swat-A-Litterbug. It's almost impossible for law enforcement to catch someone dumping litter from a vehicle because who in their right mind would roll down a window and throw out a bag with a cop behind them? With this program, any citizen can report the offending vehicle and NCDOT will take it from there. Click on the additional info link at the bottom to go to their site.
If there is an area along a city street particularly hard hit by litter, please call the city's Municipal Services Department at 336-623-2110, option 4 and report it.
Finally, please keep the area around your property clean by picking up trash that lands on it. It is frustrating when someone throws out something and it lands in your yard or it blows off the back of a vehicle and gets caught in your ditch. It's not your fault at all, but picking up the litter and disposing of it if you are able is showing your pride in your property, your neighborhood, and best of of all, your city.
