Mayor’s Clean Up Week
Coralville is hosting Mayor's Clean Up Week from May 8 through May 12 for free garbage pickup of unusable bulky items (such as broken furniture or bathroom fixtures).
Place items curbside up to 24 hours before, or by 7:00 am on, your regular trash collection day. Any items not picked up should be removed from the curb within 24 hours after collection day. This is a free event for bulky items; all extra garbage bags and yard waste must be tagged as usual. Metal is collected by a separate truck to be recycled and may be picked up on a day other than your regular collection day.
Note that appliances, construction materials, electronics, or hazardous materials are not accepted. Because of high volumes of materials collected during Mayor’s Clean Up Week, consider setting out large amounts of cardboard the week before or after Mayor’s Clean Up Week, or take it to the Coralville Recycling Center at 110 E. 7th Street. For more information, please call 319.248.1740.
