Trousdale County has helped Keep Tennessee Beautiful (KTnB) achieve perfection again.

KTnB once again achieved 100-percent participation from all 95 counties during the 2013 Great American Cleanup (GAC) thanks to the tireless efforts of our volunteers. 

This marked the seventh year in a row KTnB and its local organizers have accomplished this feat.

“For the seventh straight year, Tennessee had volunteer participation in 100 percent of its counties for the Great American Cleanup, which is a remarkable accomplishment,” said Becky Lyons, Keep America Beautiful’s chief operating officer. “Thanks to the stewardship of Keep Tennessee Beautiful, the Great American Cleanup achieved remarkable results making Tennessee a cleaner, greener, more beautiful state.”

Trousdale County Litter Program, led by Ginny Hunter, collected 600 pounds of trash in Trousdale. A total of 50 volunteers contributed 150 hours, helping Trousdale County achieve these totals.

The National Sponsors of the 2013 GAC are: Dart Container Corporation; The Dow Chemical Company; The Glad Products Company; LG Electronics U.S.A., Inc.; Nestlé® Pure Life® Purified Water; PepsiCo’s Pepsi-Cola and Gatorade companies; Troy-Bilt® Lawn and Garden Equipment; Waste Management, WM Recycle Service; and Wrigley.
