Review for Cookeville-Putnam County Clean Commission, Cookeville, TN, USA

Recycling is a natural partner for this endeavor.
The Clean Commission has a twelve member working board that shares the mission of promoting a litter free environment and conserving and preserving our natural resources.
The Clean Commission has a presence in our public schools and at an array of special events, including the Upper Cumberland Home and Garden Show and the popular Fall FunFest. There is a special indoor and outdoor education program that promotes Litter Free Events
