Curbside Leaf Collection Starts Oct. 7, 2018

Fall leaf collection is scheduled to start Monday, Oct. 8, 2018. and will run through Friday, Nov. 16. Leaves will be collected curbside if at the curb by 7 a.m. on Monday, Nov. 26.

To have your leaves collected, rake them within two feet of the street by 7 a.m. on each Monday. Crews will collect them by Friday. Please don’t bag your leaves or mix them with stick, branches or other yard waste, or any other materials.

To speed collection, please avoid placing piles near street signs or utility poles, and avoid parking in front of leaf piles.

This service is free and weather dependent; snow can require staff to convert equipment to prepare for its removal.

After the curbside collection ends, residents have a few options to dispose of leaves:

  1. Put in yard waste bags for Johnson County Refuse, collected on your regular trash and recycling day
  2. Taken to Iowa City Landfill and Recycling Center,  300 Hebl Ave. SW, Iowa City
  3. Wait for spring curbside leaf collection
