New recycling program starts August 1

Neighborhood comes together to recycle around new cart.

The GO All In recycling program starts August 1. Residents now can place all their recyclables in their new carts, which were delivered in June and July. Sorting of recyclables is no longer required, but recycling and garbage are still separate. The new recycling carts will be collected on a resident’s first recycling day falling on or after August 1.

The new recycling program includes more materials: more plastics, gable-top cartons (such as those for milk and juice), and canisters that hold foods such as chips and nuts (e.g. Pringles cans). All containers should be empty and rinsed, and boxes should be flattened. Garbage, yard waste and plastic bags do not go into the new recycling carts. Davenport and Bettendorf residents should look at the graphic on the lids of their carts or visit to find out what’s recyclable.
