Earth Day 2017

Thanks to 1300 neighbors (like the SupplyCore employees pictured on Madison Street, Rockford) who volunteered to pick up litter on Earth Day!

Special thanks to Winnebago County for backing this effort, and to all the sponsors and sites that facilitated volunteer check-in and equipment distribution as well as numerous sponsors.

Due to restrictions, bags on commercial property or at street corners cannot be picked up. Move bags to residential street at least 25′ from any intersection. Please call 815-637-1343 if bags are still on your street after May 1.

Great Job!
