Yard Waste Collection Begins April 1

Compost It! to Dispose of Lawn Clippings, Twigs and Leaves!

Metro Waste Authority’s Compost It! program collects yard waste at your curb April 1 – November 30, 2019, with a special winter collection that runs December 30, 2019 - January 10, 2020.
Residents can purchase Compost It! brand bags and stickers at Clive City Hall, online at or at participating grocer and hardware stores. The purchase of the bags or stickers covers the cost for curbside collection.

Small twigs and branches, leaves and lawn clippings, as well as garden vegetation can be collected.

• Twigs and branches: each bundle requires a green Compost it! sticker and must be smaller than four feet long by eighteen inches in diameter.

• Leaves and lawn clippings: these should be placed at the curb in Compost It! yard waste bags, or store-brand bags with a green Compost It! sticker. No other bags can be collected.

• Garden vegetation: if it died on the vine, it can be disposed of through the Compost It! program. However, spoiled fruits and vegetables from the fridge belong in the trash.

For more information and a complete list of retailers selling Compost It! stickers and bags, visit or call 515.244.0021.

*If you live in a Homeowners Association, please check with the HOA regarding participation.
