Review for Cookeville-Putnam County Clean Commission, Cookeville, TN, USA
For twenty-five years the Cookeville-Putnam County Clean Commission has worked tirelessly to promote recycling and litter prevention in the community. I first noticed their presence at a local festival several years ago. The current coordinator, Lisa Luck, puts in many more hours than she is paid for because she is so committed to this work. In addition to speaking at various area schools, Lisa meets with community members, elected officials and local business people to discuss a variety of topics related to the work of the organization. This is my third year as a board member and I can tell you that this board does much more than meet once a month! We clean a section of roadway twice a year and we all volunteer to staff our booth at several annual community events in addition to keeping these events litter-free with the help of many volunteers.
