Take time to keep our community clean and green!



Des Plaines River Cleanup

Hosted by the River Forest Park District
We encourage you and your family, organization, business, and neighborhoods to register as a Team to volunteer your time to clean up the Des Plaines riverbank and Thatcher Woods.  Pre-registration is recommended and available through online registration, or by downloading the Group Registration Form below.  Code: 4100.403.


Recycling Extravaganza
9:00am-1:00pm
Hosted by the Village Sustainability Commission
This is a drive up/drop-off event to reuse/recycle items not accepted in the curbside collection.  Clean out your basement, garage, and drop off items for recycling rather than sending them to landfill.  No electronics, hazardous materials, or paints will be accepted.  The Epilepsy Foundation will be collecting clothing, shoes, and household items.

For a detailed list of accepted items and for information on the Electronic Collection Program, visit: https://vrf.us/residents/sustainability.  For volunteer opportunities, contact julie@4moller.com.
