On Friday, December 2nd, Keep Georgia Beautiful hosted their 2016 Annual Awards Banquet. At the banquet, the South Cobb Lions Club was recognized as the Nonprofit Litter Prevention organization of the year. They had removed 462 bags of litter, 145 tires and 108 pieces of furniture from the South Cobb area over the previous year. The South Cobb Litter Index was reduced from 1.63 to 1.07. The Litter Index ranks all four Cobb Districts on a scale from 1 to 4 with lower being better. 1.07 is close to being perfect. We actually had the lowest rating of all four Cobb County Districts this year!
Way to go, South Cobb! Outstanding Work!
