Press release submitted by city of Moline



The City of Moline wishes to advise residents that the annual leaf vacuuming service will conclude on November 30, 2012. Residents may call the Leaf Hotline at 309-524-2407 to hear a pre-recorded message on the location of the vacuum crews, or by visiting the City's website at www.moline.il.us to view a map showing the daily progress.

Residents should note that if the vacuum crews have already been by their residence recently, the crews may not pass again. Leaf vacuuming is intended to aid in leaf disposal during the peak season (October 15 – November 30) and should not be considered the primary means of disposal.

Residents with leaves remaining are advised to take advantage of the yard waste bag stickers not being required. Collection of yard waste bags will continue through December 14, 2012. Leaves and grass clippings need to be placed in biodegradable bags that are available at local retailers. Yard Waste Bags will be picked up on scheduled garbage collection days.
