Review for Cookeville-Putnam County Clean Commission, Cookeville, TN, USA
I live and work in Putnam County and see the litter linning the streets. I myself take the time to separate and recycle everything I can and clean up the trash when I see it floating along the roadsides. However, more funding is needed so everyone can be provided with a curbside bin designated solely for recycling making it convienient and seen. Right now the way it is, we all have to take our recycling to designated area, now I don't mind doing this, but most people just can't or won't find the time. This is a problem. If Putnam County wanted to make the change, grants and funding are available not to mention the money the County could make off of recycled products. As a region we are proud of our land and our beautiful plateau, we can become a leader in greening our communities if only we made the effort together and our elected official made recycling a budgeted priority.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
yes, I work with the Clean Commission and advocate for a cleaner community.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
Give them more funding to provide more recycling services to the people. It should be law that all people recycle just as it is law that littering is punishable.
