Rock Island To Begin Collecting Tree Debris

Monday's powerful storm uprooted trees and took down tree limbs all across the Quad Cities.

Starting Monday, August 17th, the City of Rock Island will have a special collection for trees, limbs and branches. Garbage and other materials should not be included.

Residents are asked to set out debris by 7 AM on their normal garbage collection day of the week in their regular garbage pick-up location or near the curb.

The city is asking residents to not place limbs in the street. Limbs don't need to be trimmed or bundled and it may take several weeks to collect all debris. 

The Refuse and Yard Waste Drop Off Center is open on Saturdays from 7 AM to 12 Noon at Millennium Waste in Milan.

There is a $17 fee per vehicle with not more than the equivalent of a full-size pickup load per trip.
