Efforts joined in beautifi cation

Unicoi County has helped Keep Tennessee Beautiful
(KTnB) achieve perfection again.
KTnB once again achieved 100-percent participation
from all 95 counties during the 2013 Great American
Cleanup (GAC) thanks to the tireless efforts of our
volunteers, the organization reported.
This marked the seventh year in a row KTnB and its
local organizers have accomplished this feat.
“For the seventh straight year, Tennessee had volunteer
participation in 100 percent of its counties for
the Great American Cleanup, which is a remarkable
accomplishment,” said Becky Lyons, Keep America
Beautiful’s Chief Operating Offi cer. “Thanks to the
stewardship of Keep Tennessee Beautiful, the Great
American Cleanup achieved remarkable results making
Tennessee a cleaner, greener, more beautiful state.”
Unicoi County Chamber of Commerce, led by Dawn
Edwards, collected 815 pounds of trash in Unicoi
County. A total of 25 volunteers helped Unicoi County
achieve these totals.
The National Sponsors of the 2013 GAC are: Dart
Container Corporation; The Dow Chemical Company;
The Glad Products Company; LG Electronics U.S.A.,
Inc.; Nestlé® Pure Life® Purifi ed Water; PepsiCo’s Pepsi-
Cola and Gatorade companies; Troy-Bilt® Lawn and
