Leadership Lewis Sponsored Countywide Trashercise Event

Category: Recycling

Lewis County, Tenn. – Leadership Lewis 2022 is hosted a countywide litter clean-up event, 8 a.m. – 12 p.m. CDT, April 30. Lewis County residents were invited to gather at the Lewis County Library parking lot, 15 Kyle Ave. Hohenwald to participate in this exciting day of community improvement.

Littering is not pretty.This event is part of Keep Tennessee Beautiful’s latest initiative, Trashercise, which encourages litter pick-up while promoting the exercise benefits of the activity. On Saturday litter was picked-up along the main highways into Lewis County, along with the Memorial Park location. To urge participation, Leadership Lewis provided cash prizes of $500, $200, and $100. Prizes are sponsored by TVA, Lewis County Government, and TN Happy Homes, respectively. TCAT Hohenwald was also a sponsor, providing a $50 gift card.

“We were excited to host Trashercise across Lewis County,” COO David Thomas, Lewis County Government, said. “It was a great opportunity to get outside, have some fun, and even win some prizes. I thank everyone who joined us to help make a difference in our community.”

In addition to the litter pick-up, individuals were urged to bring their old car-sized tires to be discarded. The first 100 tires were brought in for free. Trucks and trailers from the LC Landfill were on site for this very reason.

Trashercise was an exciting campaign for Keep Tennessee Beautiful” said Missy Marshall, executive director of KTnB. “These events give our citizens an opportunity to get outside, exercise and do something productive for the community. It’s a way to tap into the volunteer spirit of Tennesseans.”

Litter is an enormous burden to the state both financially and ecologically, costing the state more than $15 million annually. In order to end littering, behavioral changes and public awareness are an absolute necessity.
