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

Wilson County, led by 2014 GAC Coordinator James Vaden, collected 13,700 pounds of trash. A total of 625 volunteers contributed 3,125 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 it has 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.
