Keep Tennessee Beautiful: Trashercise Across Tennessee

Memphis, TN

Extended! All 95 Counties in Tennesseee Encouraged to Trashercise.

Keep Tennessee Beautiful celebrated Keep Tennessee Beautiful Month and kicked-off the Great American Cleanup on March 1, 2021, by hosting Trashercise Across Tennessee state wide campaign. Trashercise Across Tennessee is an opportunity to get fit and give back by hosting a small cleanup in your community.

The Great American Cleanup offically concludes on December 31, 2021. In that spirit, Trashercisers are encouraged to register ASAP and contribute to the success of The Great American Cleanup. The good news is, KTnB's Trashercise Across Tennessee campaign continues throughout the year. Participants can either collect trash individually or in a Trashercise Tribe.  For safety precautions, it is recommended to divide Trashercisers into small teams of no more than five people. Trashercisers
can log the pounds of trash collected and the time through the virtual race app, which is free to download on your mobile devices.

Trashercise Across Tennessee water bottle sponsored by the Tennessee Department of Transportation.

A Trashercise Across Tennessee reusable water bottle will be mailed after completion of the event.

Trashercise started 15 years ago in Leiper’s Fork, Tennessee by resident Aubrey Preston. One day while working out at the gym, Aubrey had an idea to create a program that would encourage people to exercise and pick up trash in his community. After sharing his idea with friends, family and colleagues in Leiper’s,Tennessee, he decided to put those ideas into a plan of action. Thus, the Trashercise movement was born.

Aubrey created Trashercise as a fun community event with the dual benefits of roadside clean-up and exercise. Approximately 150,000 pounds of trash have been collected over the past 15 years. The success of Trashercise at the local level has inspired Keep Tennessee Beautiful to launch the program statewide.
