VILLAGE OF MACHESNEY PARK RESIDENTIAL SERVICES
A young, fast-growing village nestled into the same Rock River which gave us our name, the Village of Machesney Park is proudly served by Rock River Disposal.
Household trash is unlimited along with one bulk item per week.
35 gal. cans or bags can be used for trash. Not to be more than 50 lbs in weight.
There is a charge for an excessive clean up of a residential property. A $25.00 per hopper extra after the first hopper will be billed to the resident by Rock River Disposal. For example, if there are 4 extra hoppers required, $75.00 ($25.00 x 3) will be charged to the residential property.
Household recycling is unlimited. A brown bin is provided by Rock River Disposal for a cost of $8.00 per bin. Newspapers, aluminum cans, cardboard cut down to 2′x2′ size, tin cans, Plastics 1 – 7 and glass bottles are all accepted. The use of trash cans to hold recycling is not acceptable.
Household yard waste is unlimited. Yard waste is all grass clippings, leaves and small branches (no bigger than 4″ in diameter) from a residential property. A 50 lb. weight limit on all cans with an X and brown paper bags is enforced. All tree branches and bush trimmings need to be cut and bundled no more than 3′-5′ length. In the fall residents may rake their leaves to the curb in a long wind row for vacuuming. Yard Waste season runs typically from the beginning of April to the end of November.
