Welcome to Rock River Disposal
** Special Notice - We are experiencing unusually high call volume and wait times are longer than usual. We apologize and appreciate your patience.
ATTENTION: As of January 1st, 2012, the Electronic Products Recycling and Reuse Public Act 97-287 prohibits the disposal of e-waste (electronics) into landfills. Therefore we will no longer be collecting e-waste or serve as a drop-off location. Please contact your local electronics store to find a drop-off location near you.
REMINDER: Winter routes have begun. As always please have trash & recycling out by 6:00 a.m. Pick UP may be earlier in areas that are normally afternoon routes.
