The City of Muscatine’s Refuse Collection Program will complete Phase 3 of delivery of new refuse collection carts during the weeks of September 12-16 and September 19-23. The attached map highlights the parts of Muscatine that fall into the Phase 3 area. This area includes the City of Fruitland.


Each household will receive a standard 65-gallon cart. If a 35- or 95-gallon cart is preferred, please visit for details on requesting a different size. The deadline for ordering a different-sized cart is August 26.


After receiving the cart, residents in the Phase 3 area should place their waste-filled carts at their normal location for collection days. Please leave three feet of space on all sides of the cart, just as is required when using the recycling container. All carts delivered for this program and the current recycling program must remain at the address where the carts are delivered, even when a resident moves from their current location.
