JBS Beardstown Pulls Out 440+ Gallons of Trash from Illinois River

Our Beardstown, Ill., pork team cleaned up more than five miles of the Illinois River through its annual sponsorship of Living Lands & Waters’ “Adopt-A-River Mile” program.

In total, the team pulled out more than 440 gallons of trash and debris from the river.

Each year, JBS USA Beardstown participates in the Adopt-A-River Mile program, a Living Lands and Waters project that encourages community members to join in a clean river effort by “adopting” a mile section of the river shoreline.
