Johnson County Excels During 2014 Great American Cleanup in Tennessee

Johnson County has done a stellar job in leading their community to success during this year’s Great American Cleanup (GAC) in Tennessee.

Johnson County, led by 2014 GAC Coordinator Sandy Hammons, collected 3,024 pounds of trash. A total of four volunteers contributed 35 hours.

“We are grateful that the state of Tennessee has volunteers that take ownership of their community, helping Keep Tennessee Beautiful achieve remarkable results each year during Keep America Beautiful’ s annual spring event, the Great American Cleanup,” said KTnB Executive Director Missy Marshall. “We look forward to cultivating our relationship with organizations in each county; as well as strive to help Tennessee become a cleaner and greener state.”

KTnB expects to have 100 percent county participation during this year’s GAC. So far we have received planning forms from each county in the state. The process of collecting the wrap-up reports is currently ongoing, as nearly 40 have been submitted.

The National Sponsors of the 2014 GAC are: Dow, The Glad Products Company, Lowe’s, Phillips 66, Troy-Bilt® Lawn and Garden Equipment, and Waste Management.

For more information on GAC, contact KTnB’s Stine Moss-Cooperwood at 901-678-4160, or visit keeptnbeautiful.org/get-involved.
