Mayor’s Clean Up Week Is October 5-9


Throw away big, broken items
Mayor’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 rules
Please note the following restrictions: 

  • Items must be able to be reasonably lifted by two people.
  • Items must fit in the garbage truck. Dismantle large items.
  • See for a full list of what we’ll take. Unaccepted items include construction materials, appliances*, electronics*, hazardous materials, tires*, and wooden swingsets (*picked up by appointment only; schedule a special pick up).
  • The City reserves the right to deny collection of any items deemed hazardous to our trucks or personnel.
  • See complete guidelines at or call 319.248.1740.

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 items
Mayor’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 

Recycle cardboard
High volumes of materials are collected during Mayor’s Clean Up Week. If you have a large amount of cardboard to recycle, take it any time to the Coralville Drop-Off Recycling Center at 950 Hughes Street or any drop-off location in Johnson County. All cardboard must be flattened. Learn about cardboard recycling
