Yard waste collection season in Coralville typically lasts until late November, weather permitting. As the weather allows, the City of Coralville curbside yard waste collection will be extended for one final week. If you have leaves, pumpkins, or other fall yard waste to get rid of, now is the time to set it out.
The week of December 4, yard waste pickup will be on:
- Monday, December 4, for all Monday and Tuesday routes
- Friday, December 8, for all Wednesday and Thursday routes
Yard waste collection may be delayed on snowy or icy days while the program is still in effect. Crews must focus on clearing and treating roads for winter conditions first, and then collect yard waste.
The end of the yard waste pickup season is dependent upon the weather. Yard waste collection may end at any time before Friday, December 8, based on snow, ice, and temperatures. Residents are encouraged to set out remaining yard waste as soon as possible. Once the extended forecast indicates snow or ice, the yard waste collection program will be suspended until next spring so crews and equipment can be available for snow plowing and winter road treatment.
Yard waste guidelines
Coralville’s yard waste collection program accepts yard waste in a 33-gallon bin with an annual yard waste sticker, or in a Coralville yard waste bag. If you use another brand of yard waste bags, they will not be picked up. Put yard waste bags/containers at the curb by 7:00 am on collection day. For details about how to prepare yard waste and what is accepted, see www.coralville.org/yardwaste.
What if I miss the last yard waste pickup of the season?
Coralville residents may take household organics (food and yard waste) at no charge to the compost facility at the Iowa City Landfill and Recycling Center (3900 Hebl Avenue SW, Iowa City). It is open year-round, Monday to Saturday, 7:00 am to 4:30 pm, except for holidays and windy days. Yard waste must be separated from trash loads. Drop-off yard waste and composting
