City of Rochelle to Resume Leaf Vacuuming November 4th Due to Snow

The City of Rochelle will resume leaf vacuuming services for residents on November 4, 2019. This delay in service is due to the recent storm event leaving leaf piles cover by snow and frozen to the ground.

Leaf collection will begin at 7:00 a.m. Monday November 4th, the missed route for Thursday/Friday: North of 1st Avenue and West of 7th Street will be collected first, after this area is completed crews will collect regularly scheduled routes.

The following rules shall be followed:

1. Please rake leaves into a pile or row up to the curb, or edge of the road if you do not have a curb. To ensure all leaves are collected, piles and rows shall not exceed 5 feet in width. Do not place leaves on the street as they will clog storm water inlets and could cause flooding.
2. Please do not place leaves behind obstacles such as trees, poles, hedges, etc.
3. Please do not park vehicles within 30 feet of a leaf pile or row.
4. Please do not mix trash, yard wastes such as limbs, weeds, grass or any other material with the leaves. Yard waste or other materials mixed with leaves can cause safety concerns and equipment malfunction. For these reasons, these piles will not be accepted.

Thank you for your patience and understanding.
