April 22, 2017 (Earth Day!)
Be part of the nation’s largest annual community improvement program
Every Spring residents of Winnebago and Boone Counties join thousands of communities across the U.S. in a Great American Cleanup (GAC) litter removal day.
Originated by Keep America Beautiful, GAC is the event that mobilizes the entire community, one neighborhood at a time.
Bags filled to about 15-20 pounds may be left curbside — but at least 15 feet from an intersection — for later pickup by cooperating trash haulers, including Rock River Environmental Services. Tires will not be picked up and must be recycled at Household Hazardous Waste.
Your help is needed! Pre-register yourself or your group here.
Same-day registration starts 8 a.m. at Patriots’ Gateway Center, 615 S. 5th St., Rockford
Litter pick-up hours all morning; return equipment by Noon to same location where it was borrowed.
