|Spring time is near, signaling the return of the nation’s largest annual community improvement program, Keep America Beautiful’s (KAB) Great American Cleanup™ (GAC). |
Last year, 143,053 Tennessee volunteers contributed 358,240 hours picking up 121,098,794 pounds of litter and debris from all 95 counties (visit www.ktnb.org/gac.html for more results).
Keep Tennessee Beautiful (KTnB) will once again look for improvement during this year’s GAC in Tennessee, which will take place March 1-May 31. KTnB also will look to extend its streak of achieving 100-percent participation from all 95 counties during GAC to six years in a row.
Last year in Weakley County, a total of 55 volunteers gathered 9,270 pounds of litter during KAB’s annual spring event. Weakley County seeks more volunteers this year to be even more successful.
“The citizens of Tennessee have shown their dedication to keep our state clean, green, and beautiful over the past few years. I know that with the cooperation of our volunteer network across the state, we will accomplish even more this year,” Keep Tennessee Beautiful Executive Director Sutton Mora Hayes said.
