The Litter Problem
Tennessee has an average of 5,100 pieces of litter per mile on urban freeways. Thirty percent is deliberate litter from people in vehicles and 70% is negligent litter from unsecured loads. Last year over 8 million dollars was spent on cleanup in Tennessee. Keep Anderson County Beautiful (KACB) is an affiliate of Keep Tennessee and Keep America Beautiful.
KACB is a volunteer-based educational agency focusing on the Anderson County community: litter prevention; beautification and community improvement; and solid waste management/recycling. Keep Anderson County Beautiful serves Anderson County, TN; including Clinton, Oak Ridge, Norris, Rocky Top, and Oliver Springs.
