Yard Waste

Yard waste pickup is April 5 through November 27, 2021, with a winter collection running December 27, 2021 - January 7, 2022. Yard waste needs to be bagged with a Metro Waste Authority Compost It! bag (no sticker required) or a generic brown craft yard waste bag with a Compost It! sticker attached. Brush bundles cannot be more than 18" in diameter, must be under 4' long and cannot weigh more than 40 pounds. Stickers must be attached to each brush bundle. Bags and stickers are available here at Clive City Hall and at participating local grocery and hardware stores. Bags are $9.00 in bundles of five. Stickers are $1.50 each.

Clive residents who use the City’s garbage services, are eligible to sign up for the Premium Yard Waste Collection Program.  Participating residents have the opportunity to use a 96-gallon, wheeled container for weekly collection of their yard waste. This program is an alternative yard waste collection method and does not replace the current Compost It! program that utilizes the MWA Compost It! bags and stickers.

To Enroll

Complete an enrollment form and mail or deliver form with payment to Clive City Hall. Upon receipt of payment, the city will deliver the yard waste container to your driveway and mail a sticker to your home, which will need to be affixed to your container.

Residents that already have a Premium Yard Waste Container only need to purchase the seasonal sticker. Visit the MWA website at www.mwatoday.com to pay electronically.
