Rock Island County to Eliminate Recycling Drop-Off Centers
According to an article in the QC Times and Argus/Dispatch on July 8th, Rock Island County Waste Management Agency will terminate their Recycling Drop-Off Centers on September 30th. This agency represents 12 cities in Rock Island County. The article states that this decision was based on a budgetary short-fall, which was due to decreased revenue in solid waste tonnage attributed to businesses being closed during the pandemic.
We encourage Illinois residents to send letters of concern to the agency at 1504 Third Avenue, Rock Island, IL, 61201 or at www.ricwma.org. If you have used the drop-off sites personally, please share your need for these services.
