The Great River Road Clean UP!!!!

Updated on November 14, 2014

The Great River Road Clean UP!!!!

I was Driving from my house and I seen a group of 5 older people
walking down the road in 27 degree weather and picking up trash.
I thought to myself" If they can do that in this weather I wonder
how many people would do it in warm weather?"

Also I live down here

so when me and my kids go for a walk they always want to know how come people throw trash on the ground instead of a trash can? We pick up what we can. But it never gets better.. My boys are very concerned with this. As should everyone that drives down this road should be too. you love to see the colors, animals,and so on right. These 5 people pick up a lot of trash From Cliffton Terrace To my road. When I came home I saw a pile of trash at the beginning of my road. I didn't know how long it will be there but this is my kids bus stop.So when you drive down the road you would have run into a pile of trash. As pictures below show. I figure if there is that much trash along such a short path. what the rest of the road must look like.IDOT has ran out of trash bags. so please bring some. I will do my best to supply some,but we will need a lot.If i get enough people together.That is why I am contacting spread the news about this clean up OR COME JOIN US.. The river road is one of the top 10 Sites to see in the US. But it will not stay there if we don't help clean it up... PLEASE come help.I have a plan all ready in motion. .

Also I'm going to get neon shirts made with" The Great River Road Clean UP!! " Also they are good for safety issues too.!!

I would like to do this every year you could say a spring cleaning
for the River Road.The Alton Telegraph will be doing a story on this
cause too. If you can't come help just spread the word. That's helping
ME with this MISSION.
