Cookeville-Putnam County Clean Commission
February 24, 2011
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.
Ways to make it better...
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.
General Member of the Public & I recycle at work and at home and ask everyone to do the same.
