Garbage Collection

The City of Moline provides residential garbage collection once a week. To learn what day garbage is picked up in your neighborhood or for other questions, please call 309.524.2400 or view garbage and recycling map. Visit our recycling information page for recycling details or the garbage web map for collection dates.

Solid waste is billed quarterly on your utility bill at a rate of $9.42 per month. If you do receive garbage collection from the City of Moline, you will automatically receive curbside recycling at a charge of $3.69 per month which is also billed on your quarterly utility bill.

Holiday Collection

Refer to holiday schedule of garbage pick up for changes in collection schedule.


The City provides each residence with one cart (96 gallon or 48 gallon). Additional carts are available for a one-time lease charge of $78.96 and an annual fee of $50 to dispose of the extra garbage that will be added to your utility bill.

Carts are owned and maintained by the City. Carts are not to be written on or defaced in any way. Carts damaged through negligence or abuse will be repaired or replaced with appropriate charges made to the resident. If a resident moves, the cart remains with the property for use by the next resident.
