Garbage collection delayed for holiday

The garbage collection for Rockford residents for next week, beginning Monday, May 30, will be delayed one day due to the Memorial Day Holiday.

Residents that normally have garbage pick-up on Monday will have their collection occur on Tuesday and so on through the subsequent days of the week.

The Household Hazardous Waste site at 3333 Kishwaukee will be open as usual for the weekend: of Saturday 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. and Sunday from noon to 4 p.m.

The Household Hazardous Waste site is no longer accepting latex paint due to its non-hazardous nature. Oil based paints and paint related solvents and thinners will continue to be accepted.
