Yard Waste Collection

Tied bundle of sticks

To have sticks, branches, and other yard waste collected curbside on trash/recycling day each week:

  • Place yard waste in Johnson County Refuse bags, available for purchase at Fareway on Westwinds Drive. (Be sure to purchase the bags that are indicated for University Heights.)
  • Cut sticks and branches to size and tie them with garden twine.
    • The bundle can be no more than 36 inches around and 36 inches long.
    • One bundle will be collected free of charge each week. Attach a yard waste bag to each additional bundle. 

You have the option to take yard waste to the compost facility at the Iowa City Landfill and Recycling Center at no charge.
