To date, we have eliminated over 30 tons of trash from Rutherford County’s public spaces! Help us continue to remove litter and show pride in the place we call home.
At the conclusion of the event, the poundage will be tallied and the winning school will be awarded the Trash Bowl Trophy, made by Jordan Jackson of Night Owl Iron Works and winner of the History Channel's 'Forged in Fire'.
