Throw away big, broken itemsMayor’s Clean Up Week in Coralville offers free garbage pickup up of large, broken items that won’t fit in your trash cart (such as broken furniture or bathroom fixtures) from October 5-9, 2020. Some restrictions apply.
This free collection is available to all Coralville residences with city trash and recycling services. Place items curbside up to 24 hours before or by 7:00 am on your regular trash collection day. If any items are not picked up, remove them from the curb within 24 hours after collection day. Metal is picked up by a separate truck to be recycled, and may be picked up on a day other than your regular collection day.
Mayor’s Clean Up Week rulesPlease note the following restrictions:
As usual, tag extra bags of garbage, and put yard waste in biodegradable Coralville yard waste bags or a 33-gallon container with an annual yard waste sticker.
What to do with usable itemsMayor’s Clean Up Week is for items that need to be thrown away and cannot be reused. Do not send usable items to the landfill. To get rid of furniture or building and housing materials that are still usable, donate them to ReStore or other area agencies, rather than sending them to the landfill. Where to donate usable items
