Curbside Leaf Collection for Spring Starts March 27, 2023

Spring leaf collection is scheduled to start Monday, March 27, and will run through Friday, April 28.

To have your leaves collected, rake them within two feet of the street by 8 a.m. on each Monday. Crews will collect them by Friday. Please don’t bag your leaves or mix them with sticks, branches, 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:

  1. Put in paid yard waste bags for Johnson County Refuse to collect on your regular trash and recycling day
  2. Taken to Iowa City Landfill and Recycling Center,  300 Hebl Ave. SW, Iowa City
  3. Bring them to the Public Works facility during Spring Cleanup Day, on the last Saturday in between 7 to 11 a.m.
