T is for Trash

Yesterday I had to run an errand in Maryville and drove past the airport and noticed the big Power T in front of McGhee Tyson airport and it looked very cool.

 

They used orange and white trash bags to form the T. I was curious who set it up and why and went to the Daily Times website to discover it’s not only kinda cool, it’s really gross.

 

Blount Beautiful were the creators behind the Power T.

 

215 volunteers helped create the T and inside the bags is not what I thought it was going to be- it’s trash.

3,800 pounds of trash!

 

It was collected is this years community-wide litter cleanup and awareness campaign.

 

Does anyone else find this gross!? I thought they were leaves. I bet the raccoons love it!
