KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — A month-long initiative to remove litter in Tennessee has resulted in more than 48,000 pounds of litter collected by more than 1,300 volunteers across the state. The second annual No Trash November was spearheaded by the Tennessee Department of Transportation's litter prevention campaign, Nobody Trashes Tennessee to protect Tennessee roadways from the harmful effects of litter. Cleanups around the state were coordinated through partnerships with Keep Tennessee Beautiful affiliates and Adopt-A-Highway groups.
