If you and your car, truck, van, or SUV are having trouble getting around Rockford today, try navigating residential streets with a garbage truck--better yet, don't.

If you get home today and wonder why the garbage you left at the curb last night is still sitting there (under a rather large pile of snow)--you can thank Mother Nature.

Due to the inclement weather conditions, City of Rockford garbage pickup has been canceled for Wednesday, January 23, 2019. Wednesday’s pick-up will be delayed one day along with the other regularly scheduled pick-up days for the balance of this week.

Residents are encouraged to visit Rock River Disposal’s website at www.rockriverdisposal.com and sign up to receive alerts via email for updates on service issues. Residents may also inquire with Rock River Disposal direct by dialing their customer service number at (815) 965-2489.
