Cities push back trash collection because of freezing rain

Freezing rain has caused several cities to push their garbage collections back a day.

Davenport, Bettendorf, and Silvis have announced that they’re postponing their garbage collection Monday, January 16, 2017.

Rock Island is pushing its curbside recycling back one day.

Crews in Davenport starting salting the roads late Sunday evening, January, and will continue until the ice turns to rain today.

“It is possible for slick conditions to develop on Posted Snow Routes until precipitation turns to all rain,” said a spokesperson from the city. “Untreated residential roads, sidewalks, driveways and decks are likely to be slippery.”

Because of the road conditions, CitiBus may be delayed as well.
