Local group makes it their mission to clean up Rockford streets
ROCKFORD (WREX) -
Cleaning up Rockford one garbage bag at a time. It's the mission behind one local group whose goal is to clean the streets of Rockford.
Clean the Rock Rockford has been picking up trash in Rockford for several weeks. On Sunday the group cleaned up garbage from a stretch of Harrison Avenue starting at Seminary Street all the way past 11th Street. Nearly 25 volunteers filled 42 trash bags. Even employees from ComEd were out to lend a helping hand.
"Rockford can be seen in a positive light. There are a lot of good things about Rockford and making it look nice will help the city," says Joe Nepean Founder of Clean the Rock.
The group plans dozens of clean up events to learn more like them on Facebook.
