Yard Waste

When is yard waste collected?


Yard waste is picked up from late March until late November, weather permitting, on regular garbage collection days.

2017 Collection Extended Until December 14


Due to weather conditions, crews will continue to pick up yard waste on:
  • Your regular garbage day through Thursday, December 7
  • Both Tuesday, December 12, and Thursday, December 14, for all Coralville residences
Yard waste pickup after December 14, 2017, will be dependent upon the weather and may end at any time based on snow, ice, or dropping temperatures. Residents are encouraged to set out remaining yard waste as soon as possible. Once the extended forecast indicates snow or ice, yard waste collection will be suspended until spring.
