Yard Waste

Storm Debris Removal (8/10/2020)

  • Please cut branches and limbs to no longer than 8-10 feet, if possible.
  • Please place the debris along the curb, not in the alley. 
  • Finally, all bagged yard waste will require stickers and will be picked up by Republic Services on normal garbage collection days.
We will continue to pick it up for the next couple of weeks.


Yard waste collection is available from April through November and will occur on the same day as your regular trash collection. In order to be collected, yard waste must be set out by 7:00 am, in either a biodegradable paper bag or must have a brush tie. Please attach a yard waste sticker to each bag or bundle. Brush and tree branches may not exceed 4 feet in length and 4 inches in diameter and must be bundled with jute twine or uncoated string. Bundles must not exceed 2 feet in diameter or 50 pounds in weight.

During the months of April and November, yard waste stickers are not required for collection.

Yard waste stickers may be purchased at East Moline Jewel, Walgreen’s, both East Moline locations and at Silvis HyVee at the cost of $1.50 per sticker. Brush ties may be purchased at East Moline Jewel and at Silvis HyVee at the cost of $1.75 per brush tie.
