City of Bettendorf, Iowa

A premier city.

Solid Waste Program

 In an effort to decrease the spread of COVID-19, the City of Bettendorf is further adjusting staff schedules to support workplace safety while maintaining essential solid waste collection services.
Effective Monday May 18, the City will begin residential garbage, recycling, bulky waste, and yard waste collection at 6:00 a.m. Be sure to set your solid waste and recycling cans and bulk/yard waste  out the night before at your collection point to avoid missed pickup.

The Solid Waste program encompasses collection and disposal of household garbage, recyclable items, yard waste, bulky waste and electronic waste. For more details on each Point of Interest, click on the item on left side of this page. Thanks! Please keep in mind, each service runs with a different truck and items may be picked up at different times during the day of your service. For instance, your garbage cart might be emptied at 8:30am, but the bulky waste vehicle may not be to your area until the afternoon.
Please note: The City provides collection services on Martin Luther King Jr. Day and Presidents Day. If your collection falls on one of these days, please set out your items at your collection location no later than 6 a.m.


To help the City provide the most cost effective service, please follow the following tips for garbage collection:
Garbage Tips

1. All garbage must be placed in the cart with the lid closed.

2. The City recommends bagging all garbage before placing it in the cart.

3. To keep costs down, cart placement is key!

4. Each extra bag of garbage must have a $3.00 sticker affixed. Place the bag next to the cart.


Disposal of Old U. S. Flags

If you have old U.S. flags to dispose of they should be taken to the VFW on State Street, just west of Grace Marina.  They have an old mailbox that they are deposited in.
