Mayor’s Clean Up Week Is October 3-7

Mayor's Fall Clean Up Week

Get rid of broken, unusable items for free garbage pickup, and donate usable items to ReStore

Mayor's Clean Up Week
Mayor’s Clean Up Week in Coralville offers free curbside pickup of large, broken items that won’t fit in trash carts (such as a roll of carpet, a piece of broken furniture, or a broken bathroom fixture) on your City trash day from October 3-7, 2022. Some restrictions apply. This free collection is available to 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 something is not picked up, remove it 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.

Before setting anything at the curb, please note the following restrictions: 

  • Items must be able to be reasonably lifted by two people.
  • Items must fit in the garbage truck. Take apart large items.
  • See for a full list of what we’ll take. We will not take appliances*, electronics*, tires*, construction materials, hazardous materials, pallets, hot tubs, railroad ties, concrete brick or block, and wooden swingsets (*appliances, electronics, and tires are picked up by appointment only; schedule a special pick up).
  • The City cannot pick up items that are hazardous to our trucks or staff.
  • See complete guidelines at or call 319.248.1740.

Smaller items belong in your trash cart; if your cart is full, put extra items in a garbage bag with a trash sticker. Small loose items left on the ground will not be picked up. Put yard waste in recyclable Coralville yard waste bags or a 33-gallon container with an annual yard waste sticker. 

What to do with usable items
Do not throw away usable items. If you have usable furniture or building and housing materials, donate them to area agencies, rather than sending them to the landfill. Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity ReStore, Houses into Homes, Goodwill, or other area agencies may accept certain items. Where to donate usable items 

Recycle cardboard
Do not leave items in cardboard boxes; cardboard is banned from the landfill and must be recycled.  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
