A new place for residents and businesses to drop off recycling will open in Davenport. Centennial Park Drop-Off Recycling Center at 202 S. Marquette St. is located just west of Centennial Park and adjacent to the Dog Off Leash Area and will open on Thursday, October 31st.
"Centennial Park Drop-Off Recycling Center will serve a need in the downtown community for convenient recycling. When recycling is made easier, we know that people recycle more," said Kathy Morris, director of Waste Commission of Scott County, in a release. "Of course we always want to see more recycling in our community—not only because it's the right thing to do, but because it extends the life of the landfill."
The new center will be open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.
Acceptable materials for recycling will include corrugated cardboard, mixed paper (including chipboard, such as cereal boxes), and containers (#1 and #2 plastics, metal cans, and glass food containers). Detailed recycling information may be found on the Commission's Website, www.wastecom.com.
