ROCKFORD — We’ve all heard the trash talk, but today one group brought out the garbage bags on a quest to make a difference and clean-up the city
Joe Nepean and some of his friend’s cleanup the city of Rockford piece by piece, turning trash talk into action.
“I had seen numerous people complaining about the city of Rockford,” He said. “How it’s dirty and crime ridden but nobody’s offering solutions and that’s where clean the rock was born.”
Cassy Nepean is also an organizer of Clean the Rock, but she hopes the event doesn’t end this weekend.
“Even if it’s something as little as picking up garbage here or there,” Cassy said. “You’re helping the community in some way…. it motivates other people to get out whether it’s there neighborhood or they’re walking their dog they see trash and they can go ahead and pick that up.”
