The Clean Commission performs essential tasks for the Cookeville community. It coordinates litter pick up, it educates children to understand the need to preserve the environment and how to do it, and it works with businesses to help them become more environmentally savy.
I am a director of a non-profit in Cookeville, and have worked with the Clean Commission for the four years I have been in this role. We have an annual festival around the Courthouse Square each fall with some 20,000 people in attendance. The Clean Commission has a booth there for educational purposes as well as handling the huge job of litter pick-up throughout the event. This organization has made us all aware of how much can- and should be- recycled, and are willing to work hard to show us just how to do that. I have a great appreciation and respect for Lisa Luck and the Clean Commission, and fully support them in their mission.
The Home Builders Association of the Upper Cumberland is thankful to the Cookeville-Putnam County Clean Commission for coordinating the recycling efforts at the annual Home & Garden Show. Without the help of the clean commission, massive amounts of cardboard, aluminum and plastic would be discarded in the dumpsters during the 3-day event.
