Residential Garbage Collection Schedule Change

Residential Garbage Collection Schedule Change

The residential refuse collection for the City of Rochelle has been re-routed to improve efficiency and continue our commitment to be environmentally conscious.

Each household in the City of Rochelle, east of US-251 (Seventh Street) and the Askvig Subdivision will have their garbage and landscape waste collected on Mondays, beginning November 4th. Residents west of US-251 (Seventh Street) will have their garbage and landscape waste picked up Tuesdays, starting November 5th.

For residences located on US-251 (Seventh Street), garbage and landscape waste from households on the east side of the street will be collected on Mondays and garbage and landscape waste from households on the west side of the street will be collected on Tuesdays.

Please note that garbage, landscape, and recycling will all be collected on the same day. Please have the landscape containers clearly marked with an “X”, so they can be distinguished from the garbage. The size of the containers is limited to no larger than 33 gallons and weighing no more than 50 pounds. Landscape waste can also be put into the paper landscape bags. Clear plastic bags will not be collected.

Bi-Weekly Recycling Collection:

For residents living live east of US251 and north of Seventh Avenue and Askvig Subdivision residents, recycling will begin Monday, November 4th. For residents east of US251 and south of Seventh Avenue recycling collection will begin Monday, November 11.

For residents living west of US-251 and north of Ninth Avenue, recycling will begin Tuesday, November 5. For those west of US251 and south of Ninth Ave, recycling will begin Tuesday, November 12th.

Recycling will continue to be a bi-weekly service. While some residents may not have a change in the collection days, most will be affected by this change in operations. Please make note of the change, and remember to have your cans out by 5am on the morning of the collection.

Please feel free to contact our Northern Illinois Disposal Customer Service Representative at 815-562-4134 or 800-930-7321 with any questions.
