The Bi-State Waste Coalition is a group of solid waste agencies in Eastern Iowa and Western Illinois. The Coalition serves Cedar, Clinton, Dubuque, Jackson, Muscatine and Scott Counties in Iowa, and Henry and Rock Island Counties in Illinois. The original Comprehensive Solid Waste Plan for this region was completed in 1990 to identify goals for solid waste reduction in both Iowa and Illinois. Because the requirements to update the plan differed by state, Henry and Rock Island Counties now update their plans separately. The five Iowa counties last updated their Comprehensive Plan in March 2016.
