2000 - Government Award - Environmental Improvement - Cherokee County Board of Commissioners

The Cherokee County Board of Commissioners is dedicated to cleaning up their home. They appointed a Committee for a Clean Cherokee County and created the Cherokee County Solid Waste Trust Authority. The Trust secured funding for the construction of three new Transfer Stations which also serve as Recycling Centers. The Commissioners have relentlessly pursued the illegal dumping problem.

Since 1989, nearly all of the county’s 32 illegal dumpsites have been cleaned up. The Board supports an annual free dump day, called “Trash Off Day,” and they set up educational booths at the fair and other public events. THE CHEROKEE COUNTY BOARD OF COMMISSIONERS IS GOOD NEWS FOR OKLAHOMA’S ENVIRONMENT!
