Curbside Leaf Collection to Begin Final Pass for Fall 2020
City crews will soon begin the final pass through North Liberty. To ensure collection, residents should have leaves to the curb by 7 a.m., Monday, Nov. 30, 2020.
Crews will not return to any street once collection there has been completed, including for leaves raked after the area has been collected or for piles crews couldn’t collect due to parked cars.
Final collection will take longer than previous years as we make operational changes to protect the health of our staff so they are available for priority tasks such as snow removal.
To have your leaves collected, rake them within two feet of the public street by the deadline. Please don’t bag your leaves or mix them with sticks, 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 vehicles in front of leaf piles.
This service is free and weather dependent; snow can require staff to convert equipment to prepare for its timely removal.
After the curbside collection ends, residents have a few options to dispose of leaves:
- Put in Johnson County Refuse yard waste bags, collected on your regular trash and recycling day, for $1.65 per bag
- Taken to Iowa City Landfill and Recycling Center, 300 Hebl Ave. SW, Iowa City, for free
- Wait for spring curbside leaf collection, for free
