The City of Rock Island offers a Curbside Recycling Subscription Program which any Rock Island citizen or business may join.

Recycling collection is divided into six (6) curbside recycling routes and will be collected every two weeks.

The Holiday Collection Schedule will indicate if recycling collection will be delayed due to a holiday.
