Goals Surpassed for Trash Removal In Tennessee

Doubling Efforts

NASHVILLE, TN – (AP) – A group of volunteers in Tennessee has more than doubled the goal of trash removal across the state. The state Department of Transportation says No Trash November was created to keep Tennessee roads safe in preparation for busy holiday traffic.

The agency says more than 1,000 volunteers removed 46,067 pounds of litter. The goal was 20,000 pounds.

Volunteers worked in 56 cleanups and collected 2,180 bags of litter and 2,501 pounds of large items. The campaign started Nov. 5 with a cleanup at Tennessee State University.
