Rock River Disposal plans to resume collection of yard waste from Rockford residents the week of April 1, 2019.

"Yard waste" consists of grass clippings, leaves and small branches. It will be collected if contained in a) compostable paper bags, or b) garbage cans clearly marked with a large “X”.

Larger twigs, branches and other types of brush must be placed into bundles no more than 4 feet long by 2 feet in diameter, with branches no thicker than 4” in diameter. A bundle should not weigh over 25 lbs. Bundles should be tied with string or twine and not metal, plastic or tape.
