NEW BERN (WNCT)- New Bern is taking steps to reduce the amount of litter around town.
Elected officials and residents say trash is a problem, especially on the highways and downtown. The city has placed multiple recycling bins in the historic area. They hope that will help fix the problem.
Alderman Dallas Blackiston said, “We want our visitors and our residents to recognize New Bern as a clean city, a safe city, and a fun city.”
Starting this summer public works will be responsible for removing litter from town.
