(CNN)Thousands of people are practicing social distancing worldwide and under stay-at-home orders to stop the spread of coronavirus, but that’s not stopping neighbors from leaving messages of hope in the windows of their homes. People are putting rainbows, colorful heart cutouts, teddy bears and anything that resembles a sign of hope in their windows.

COVID-19 Update

Dear Valued Customers,

In order to protect the health and welfare of our employees along with keeping our customers and public safe, effective March 23, 2020 we are temporarily making the following collection changes until further notice.

All trash/refuse must be placed in a company designated cart, a can with handles, or bagged. Loose unconstrained items will not be collected. More specifically:

-All bulk item/construction debris collection is suspended until further notice.

-All white good/e-waste collection is suspended until further notice.

At this time, yard waste and recycling service is unaffected by the changes; however, we do anticipate potential changes to yard waste and recycling programs also.

We will continue practicing the protocols and recommendations of the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.  Again, these are temporary changes made in the effort to keep your community and our employees safe. We will update you as soon as anything changes moving forward.

Your anticipated cooperation in this matter is greatly appreciated.  If you have any questions, please contact Rock River Disposal at 815-965-2489.
