City of Moline to Offer Curbside Recycling March 31


Some residents in Moline have already received a blue container next to their trash can; the new container will be used for recycling starting Monday, March 31. If one looks closely at the lid, if it has the word “white” on it, your service starts March 31. If your lid says “maroon” on it, your recycling service starts Tuesday, April 7.

Pick up dates for recycling are the same as your garbage day, except that it’s done every other week. Please note, this does not mean, twice a month. A brochure by the city of Moline said, “On your recycled week, place your 48 gallon blue recycle cart at the curb three feet from your garbage cart.” The program is “single streamed” meaning all items go into the blue container. Paper, plastic containers and cans are accepted.  No glass items are allowed. The cost will be $2.56 a month on your water bill. More detailed instructions about the items that are recycled will be provided on the lid of the new container.

The City of Moline’s Recycling Do’s and Don’ts are the following:

1. Glass is not accepted in the curbside recycling program.


2. Follow the recycle directions provided on the lid of your recycle cart or on the recycle containers at the drop-off center.

3. Rinse out all cans and containers before recycling them.

4. Labels on cans are OK but throw the sharp lids away.


5. Throw away food contaminated paper and foil.

6. Break down cardboard so it will fit and save space in your curbside recycling cart and to save space at the drop-off center.
