Effective immediately, Rock River Disposal has temporarily suspended the collection of bulk waste – including items such as mattresses, furniture and Freon-free appliances.

Please continue to bag all general household garbage (not including recyclables) before placing in cans to minimize exposure risk to collection staff.

“In order to protect the health and welfare of our employees along with keeping our customers and public safe, effective March 23, 2020 we are temporarily making the following collection changes until further notice.

All trash/refuse and recycling must be placed in a company designated cart, a can with handles, or bagged. Loose uncontained items will not be collected. More specifically:

– All bulky item/construction debris collection is suspended until further notice.

– All white good/e-waste collection is suspended until further notice.

At this time, yard waste and recycling service is unaffected by the changes; however, we do anticipate potential changes to yard waste and recycling programs also.

We will continue practicing the protocols and recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  Again, these are temporary changes made in the effort to keep your community and our employees safe. We will update you as soon as anything changes moving forward.”

Your anticipated cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated.  If you have any questions, please contact Rock River Disposal at 815-965-2489.
