Curbside Leaf Collection to Begin in October for Fall 2022
Collection continues, though weather has slowed leaf collection.
The City of North Liberty’s crew will make one final pass through North Liberty to collect leaves starting Monday, Nov. 21, 2022. To guarantee collection, leaves should be at the curb by 7 a.m. that morning. Crews will not return once they have collected from a street.
The crew expects this collection to take up to two weeks, depending on weather and other factors.
Fall leaf collection is scheduled to start Monday, Oct. 10, 2022 and run through Nov. 18.
To have your leaves collected, rake them within two feet of the public street by 7 a.m. Monday of collection weeks. All public streets in town will be collected at least once before a second round will start, and during heavy collection weeks residents may only see delays.
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.
Residents have a few options to dispose of leaves is if disposal timing is critical or after the curbside collection ends:
- 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
