ROCKFORD (WIFR) -- The garbage collection in many alleys within the City of Rockford are delayed due to snow accumulation and freeze/thaw cycles creating icy conditions for garbage truck access.

Some alley locations will experience considerable delays throughout the week while other locations are inaccessible for alley pick-up. Snow accumulations over the weekend of March 1st and 2nd have made navigation of alleys even more difficult. Residents with difficult alley access are advised to place their garbage and recyclables at the curb for pick-up until conditions change. Rock River Disposal will be checking both the alley and the street for the regular alley pick-up locations.

Residents are encouraged to visit Rock River Disposals website at www.rockriverdisposal.com for updates on service issues. Signing up for “MESSAGE ALERTS” on the website will provide updates and notifications to the subscriber via email.
