Have an Old Green Bin?

The City is looking for 100 of the old green recycling bins for a community recycling project. If you have an old green bin that you no longer need, you can drop it by City Hall or the City's Municipal Waste Handing Facility (just off of 11th street). Thanks so much for your help!

The new site is now live! Created collaboratively by the Monmouth Business Council, the City of Monmouth, the Chamber and Midwest Bank of Western Illinois, this community marketing site will help spread the word about the excellent retail, dining and lodging we have here in Monmouth. If you would like your business featured on the site, please use the Contact form on the site to let us know and a site administrator will be in touch.
