Boone and Winnebago County, Illinois
Part of the Nation’s Largest Annual Community Improvement Program
Every Spring residents of the Northern Illinois Stateline 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. Whether you and your neighbors just want to pick up litter or you have in mind a beautification project of a larger nature, the GAC is the umbrella under which to do it.
Keep Northern Illinois Beautiful and Winnebago County Public Works make safety equipment, trash pickup bags and water available for volunteers. Once the bag is full, leave it curbside for later pickup by cooperating trash haulers including Rock River Environmental Services.
Your help is needed! Same-day registration 8-9 a.m. 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.
Call Frank Manzullo, 815-637-1343, with questions.
Nationally, Keep America Beautiful promotes Great American Cleanups that occur between March and May 31st.
Keep Northern Illinois Beautiful has been recognized by Keep America Beautiful
for continuously organizing a local Great American Cleanup since 1988, usually the last Saturday in April.
