5 for Friday Take the Pledge!
Cumberland County Solid Waste is teaming up with the City of Fayetteville and the nonprofit, Sustainable Sandhills to launch an anti-litter campaign called 5 for Friday.
Its goal is to encourage businesses, schools, community groups, and individuals to reverse litter by having people pick up five pieces of trash and recyclable materials every Friday.
You are invited to sign the 5 for Friday pledge here. As the campaign grows, you may see 5 for Friday decals and posters on windows or in spaces throughout Fayetteville and Cumberland County.
