The City of Rochelle and Northern Illinois Disposal will be delivering new trash cans to residents the week of March 21st. Residential garbage collection using the new cans will begin on March 28th.
Starting March 28th and going forward, all residential garbage, recycling, yard waste, and brush collection within City limits will take place at the curb or edge of the road, this includes all residents with alleys. All residential alley collection will end at this time.
Residents who ordered a second can will also receive those cans the week of March 21st, but the cans will be delivered separately and may arrive on different days.
Interested in recycling? Residents have two options. First, to use one of your existing trash cans for recycling, simply pick up a free sticker at City Hall, RMU Customer Service or the Library. Second, residents may contact Northern Illinois Disposal to purchase recycling cans. Residents who currently recycle will see no changes to the program and may continue to use the blue and green cans as usual.
For questions, please call City Hall at 562-6161.
