    KINGSPORT, Tenn.— Keep Kingsport Beautiful and sponsor AEP Appalachian Power are looking for volunteers to serve as Trashbusters during Fun Fest, July 12-20. 
     
    To receive free admission to NeedToBreathe, Tyler Farr or Newsboys, PLUS a FREE Fun Fest t-shirt, just sign up to be a Fun Fest Trashbuster!  The only thing required is that you work two Fun Fest events, with one being the concert of your choice.
     
    “AEP Appalachian Power has sponsored the Trashbuster program for over a decade and KKB is very proud of this valued partnership,” said Robin Cleary, Director of Keep Kingsport Beautiful.  Trashbusters are dedicated volunteers who patrol the festival areas setting a good example for everyone attending by maintaining litter free grounds and encouraging Fun Festers to be responsible for their own trash and to recycle whenever possible.  Brand-new ClearStream recycling containers will be available throughout the grounds of The Taste this year. Keep Kingsport Beautiful’s goal during Fun Fest to ensure that festival events remain litter free and plastic bottles/cups and cans are recycled. 
     
    KKB, AEP and Fun Fest are looking for individuals, families, church groups, scout troops, civic clubs, and business/employee groups to serve as Trashbusters July 12-20.  Trashbusters also provide excellent opportunities for area high school and college students to earn community service hours for TN Promise and TN/VA Scholars requirements.
