Mayor's Clean Up Weeks
Each spring and fall residents set out items too large for bags, such as furniture and bathroom fixtures, to be picked up on trash collection day at no charge. Garbage and yard waste must be tagged as usual. Metal is picked up by a separate truck and may not occur on collection day.
Items not accepted for pickup:
- Construction materials
- Hazardous waste
The 2013 Mayor's Clean Up Weeks are May 6-10 and October 7-11. For more information call 319.248.1740.
Recycle Swap Day
This free spring event at City Hall keeps items out of the landfill when citizens donate or trade clean, usable items as a form of recycling. Items left at the end of the day are donated to non-profit organizations.
Items are sorted for reuse into the following categories:
- Furniture and large appliances
- Recyclable paper
- Small appliances, household items, toys
The 2013 Recycle Swap day is Saturday, May 4. For more information call 319.248.1720 or email Dawn Stoddard
