DAVENPORT, IA—Construction work has begun on the Waste Commission of Scott County’s Scott Area Recycling Center, 5640 Carey Avenue, Davenport. The new addition will allow for single stream recycling operations. During construction there will be periodic closures at our Carey avenue entrance requiring all traffic to be re-routed to our 59th street entrance.

Due to the construction work all Household Hazardous Material (HHM), used waste oil, oil filters, and antifreeze disposal will be directed to the Commission’s HHM facility at the Scott Area Landfill -- 11555 110th Avenue (County Road Y-48), Davenport, IA 52804. During this time residents of Scott and Rock Island Counties will be able to dispose of household hazardous items during regular business hours (7:45 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.) Monday through Friday. Residents may drop off household hazardous items on Saturdays by appointment only. Waste motor oil, oil filters, and antifreeze disposal will also be handled through our landfill HHM facility during regular business hours, no appointment necessary.

We anticipate construction work on our single stream recycling facility to wrap up in the summer of 2016.  Thank you to our customers for their patience during this major project.
