Keep America Beautiful and the North Carolina Department of Transportation are sponsoring a Tarp Day Event this week.

Macon County Solid Waste Management Department is participating in the event on Wednesday, October 23, from 9 a.m. to 1 p.m. or until they have given out all of the available tarps.

Landfill employees will be offering a free tarp along with information on North Carolina laws regarding unsecured loads of pickup trucks and other vehicles that enter the landfill on Lakeside Drive in Franklin. According to the NCDOT, unsecured loads prove to be one of the biggest sources of litter on state roadways.
