Rockford beginning spring cleanup

Staff Report

The City of Rockford has announced that yard waste collection and street sweeping will resume today.

Yard waste will only be collected when placed in compostable paper bags or in garbage cans clearly marked with a large “X” visible from the street.

Tree limbs and branches less than 4″ in diameter bundled with string or twine may be placed for collection as long as the bundles  don’t exceed four feet in length, three feet in diameter and 50 pounds in weight.

Street sweeping will begin today on arterial and collector level streets.

The street sweep phase will take approximately two weeks, weather permitting.

The Central Business District street sweeping will begin April 2 during the overnight hours.
