What exactly is "pure garbage"? Is that a new engineering term?
The only time that I have heard this phrase used is in critical reviews of a particular structural software package (the one that rhymes with "bad").
I second the thoughts of Conrad and Paul. You should insist on a geotechnical report. The encountered rock is only useful to you if it is:
1] strong, AND
2] competent, AND
3] thick, AND
Also, as EOR, you should never accept any changes to your design that are detrimental to your design intent.
