If you didn’t get the chance to send your fallen leaves packing before the first snow of the winter season, now is your chance.
Yard waste collection in the QC is in the works.

In Bettendorf, from April 7 – April 18 stickers will not be required on yard waste bags. Waste will be collected on regular trash collection day.

It is also an option to drop off compost at the Davenport Compost Facility. For more information on yard waste bags, tree trimmings and brush bundles, and more – click here.

In Moline, yard waste collection was set to run from Monday, March 31 – December 12. Bags of yard waste must be set 3 feet away from solid waste and recycle carts. Brush trimmings and tree limbs will also be collected for free. All collection will be done on the same day as your regular garbage collection day.

A spokesperson from the City of Moline said that bagged lawn waste needs to be in biodegradable paper bags that are 30-gallon capacity or less. A City yard waste sticker also needs to be attached.

You can purchase stickers for $2 at most hardware and grocery stores in Moline as well as at the Finance Office at 1630 8th Avenue.

If you have brush trimmings or tree limbs, they must be tied into bundles no more than four-feet long and one-foot in diameter. Any piles that are unbundled or larger than the allotted size will require a $140 prepayment at the Moline Finance Office. For more information on brush and tree limb requirements – click here.
