Happy Earth Day!

In celebration of Earth Day (and Earth Month) we’re sharing a bit about our iLivehere program and how you can get involved. Created in April 2008, iLivehere is the Waste Commission of Scott County’s environmental outreach program. As a Keep America Beautiful Affiliate, iLivehere empowers you with information, activities, and resources to be a steward of our environment.

The program has a few different components:

  1. Provide free cleanup supplies – iLivehere provides supplies such as bags, gloves, and litter tongs to those helping to make the Quad-Cities a cleaner place to live, work, and play. If you and your neighborhood group, church group, environmental club, business, family, or anyone else are planning a cleanup, we’re here to help! 
  2. Loan event recycling containers – iLivehere loans portable recycling containers for use at area events and festivals at no charge!
  3. Coordinate MAKE it YOURS – our adoption program – See a place in your community (within Scott County only) that needs a little TLC? Groups can MAKE it YOURS by agreeing to care for it at least twice per year. We’ll provide cleanup supplies and even post a sign to recognize your efforts!
