6th ANNUAL HRL CLEANSWEEP SAT, SEPTEMBER 16          The annual High Rock Lake CleanSweep [@HRLCleanSweep] is from 9 AM – 3 PM. This is the only lake event that encompasses both Davidson and Rowan Counties for a unified collaborative effort that benefits the region. 

The High Rock dam catches most of the larger debris which could remain in High Rock Lake. But there needs to be more of a community effort to remove random debris floating on the lake, from footballs and beverage cans to flip flops and even pieces of docks. High Rock Lake is situated between Davidson and Rowan Counties and provides recreation opportunities for residents and visitors alike, adding to the economy of more than a dozen municipalities. 

With two clean-up/collection access points on the lake, volunteers can use either N.C. Wildlife Access ramp location at Bringle Ferry Road, Salisbury or Hwy. 8, Southmont, for supply pick up and debris drop off at the end of the day.

Homeowner associations, scout troops, and dozens of individual homeowners and even those who do not live on the lake but have been enjoying it for years are invited to come out to the wildlife access ramp to receive supplies and identify the location that they preferred to work. No matter the connection to the lake, all have one thing in common, an appreciation for our natural resources and the desire to keep our recreational gem sitting between Rowan and Davidson Counties – CLEAN and SAFE.

To inquire about service hours for your group, please reach out via email to info@HRLcleansweep.org. Students will walk away with a signed certificate with the number of hours they participated.

In addition to the necessary clean-up supplies, volunteers will receive free tee shirts and lunch. Last year’s results from our army of ‘clean sweepers’ were impressive: 4,560 pounds of trash hauled into the Rowan County provided dumpsters and 3,040 pounds from the Davidson side into Best Disposal dumpsters.

We would love more volunteers, as more hands mean less trash in our lake!
