ABOUT US--Making an Impact on Quality of Life

Winnebago Landfill Company started out as Pagel’s Landfill in 1972. Since then, we have grown into one of the most respected and privately owned solid waste companies in the Midwest. We have safely and responsibly provided solid waste disposal and recycling services at our location in southern Winnebago County and our IEPA compliance record is exemplary.

As a result of the continued growth within our core service areas, we have dedicated ourselves to expanding our services. Yet we have never deviated from our core beliefs: integrating our Rock River Environmental Services philosophy of safety and quality, implementing the safest operational processes, and actively exploring new cutting-edge energy sources.

Our commitment to making a positive difference in our service areas through adherence to the highest ethical and safety standards, combined with our desire to give back to the communities we serve, is the foundation of all we do.
