Curbside Leaf Collection Starts April 1, 2019
Spring leaf collection is scheduled to start Monday, April 1, 2019, and will run through Friday, April 19.
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.
After the curbside collection ends, residents have a few options to dispose of leaves:
- Put in yard waste bags for Johnson County Refuse, collected on your regular trash and recycling day
- Taken to Iowa City Landfill and Recycling Center, 300 Hebl Ave. SW, Iowa City
- Bring them to the Public Works facility during Spring Cleanup Day, April 27, from 7 to 11 a.m.
