Volunteers wanted to pick up litter during River Sweep
NT Staff

Friends of the Illinois River will have its Illinois River Sweep beginning at 9 a.m. Saturday, Sept 21. The event will be hosted this year by River Sweep captain Katie Troccoli. The event will begin at 9 a.m. and last until noon at the west end of Allen Park at the Illinois River.

Volunteers are wanted to help with general cleanup along the Illinois River and tributaries. Interested parties may contact Troccoli at or (815) 228-2058.
Garbage bags and gloves are provided.

“All are welcome! Drive in, walk in, bike in, boat in!” Troccoli wrote. “Washington Square Realtors will provide doughnuts and bottled water. A dumpster for the event will be provided by Thrush Sanitation. Over the years, tons of waste have been removed from our rivers. Come out enjoy nature and good friends.”
