The City of Kewanee Sanitation Department is responsible for City trash, recycling, and landscape bag pickup, as well as the City’s Transfer Station. Trash and recycling pickup takes place Tuesday through Thursday and routes are picked up between the hours of 6:00 a.m. and 2:30 p.m. Landscape bags are picked up city-wide on Mondays the third week of March through the first week of December.
The Transfer Station is open Monday - Friday from 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. (closed for lunch from 11:00 - 11:30), and closed on City Hall business holidays. All truck loads must be tarped, or could be subject to a $50.00 fine or refusal of services.
If you have questions about your scheduled trash pickup day, what can be placed in the trash or recycling or taken to the Transfer Station, how much trash is allowed, what size containers can be used, or general questions or concerns, please contact City Hall’s Public Works Clerk at 852-2611 Ext. 222.

The facility that takes the City's landscape pickup has asked to remind residents that only allowed landscape materials can be in the brown paper landscape bags. See the Landscape Waste Pickup fact sheet above for what is allowed. Miscellaneous trash cannot be in with the landscape bags and must be disposed of in the proper trash or recycling bags. They also ask that bags remain free of clear, packing, or duct tape to either attach stickers or close the bags. Only the City of Kewanee stickers can be attached to the bags. The pictures below are examples of bags recently picked up that are not in the approved disposal manners. If you have any questions on landscape pickup, please contact City Hall at the phone numbers listed above.
