Northern Illinois Disposal Services provides waste collection which includes garbage, yard waste and recycling to the residents of the City of Rochelle. In addition, the City of Rochelle Street Department provides city residents with large brush pickup and seasonal leaf vacuuming. In an effort to cover all of the City of Rochelle Street Department’s costs for landscape waste processing, the city council approved increasing the landscape waste fee from $1.49 to $3.13, effective January 1, 2018.
Currently, all garbage and landscape fees are listed on the RMU utility bill as “Garbage”. In order to provide more transparency to our customers, the garbage fee and the city landscape waste fee will be listed on the bill as two separate line items. For example, one line item will state “Garbage $9.87” and the other line item will state “Landscape Waste $3.13”.
If you have any questions, please call the RMU Customer Service Department at 815-562-4155.
