Storm Debris Cleanup Update
City crews are still cleaning up debris left over from the derecho storm. As of this date residents should have placed all debris from the storm in front of their homes. The debris should be placed along the street where city crews can reach them.
We will continue to pick up storm debris until all debris is picked up. There is no charge to residents for picking up the storm debris.
The city has also published a map to show what streets the city has covered for the storm cleanup. We will be updating the maps each day to show the progress. City residents can find the map at this link:
For the areas where storm cleanup has already been completed the regular rules for branch and brush pickup are in effect which are:
• For free pick up, brush trimmings or tree limbs must be tied into bundles with individual limbs being no more than 4 feet in length and no more than 4 inches in diameter, and the bundles being no more than 1 foot in diameter.
• Brush is collected on the same day as regular garbage collection.
• Unbundled and larger piles of brush and limbs require prepayment of $140 paid at the Moline Finance Office, 1630 8th Avenue.
• Please stack neatly, not under any low wires or next to trees or poles.
• There is no limit to the size of the pile, but 4 inches diameter is the maximum per branch.
There were many branches and debris as a result of this storm and City crews have been working to get to everyone. If for some reason we missed your pile after the map says we have been in your neighborhood, please call the City and let us know. We will be out to take care of it as soon as possible.
Concerns and questions regarding the storm clean-up can be directed to Public Works at 309-524-2400.
