Seasonal citywide yard waste pickup in Rockford ends next week

Posted:
ROCKFORD (WREX) -

The City of Rockford's final week of citywide yard waste collection for the 2015 season will be Monday, November 30 through Thursday, December 3.

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

Compostable paper bags and cans must be in good shape and weigh less than 50 pounds.

Branches and limbs less than four inches in diameter may be bundled with string or twine and may be placed for pickup as long as it doesn't exceed four feet in length, three feet in diameter and 25 pounds in weight.

Yard waste picked-up will not resume again until the compost site reopens in the spring of 2016.
