Knox County organizations aiming for lower or zero waste events can now get a free helping hand from Keep Knoxville Beautiful.

Thanks to a grant from the Alcoa Foundation, KBB now offers an Event Recycling Trailer that holds 35 recycling containers and bags to be set up throughout any event.

The group can also help with planning a reduced-waste or waste-free event, said Allison Teeters, KBB executive director.

In addition to the recycling containers, the trailer includes bags, event signage, instructions, a fold out table and stop litter information.

KBB is also accepting sponsors for the trailer, which will feature their logos on the back.

For more information or to schedule an event visit the Keep Knoxville Beautiful website.

In June of this year, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency proposed new guidelines regulating emissions from existing power plants under the Clean Air Act.

The public can learn how these new regulations could affect Tennessee and the Southeast at the EPA Clean Power Plan forum, presented by the Howard Baker Jr. Center for Public Policy at the University of Tennessee 1-5 p.m. August 26.
