Yard Waste Pick-up Ends
Metro Waste Authority’s Compost It! program collects yard waste at your curb. The collection season will end November 28, 2020.
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. Bundles 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! Premium yard waste carts, yard waste bags, or store-brand bags with a green Compost It! sticker attached. No other bags or containers 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.
Residents can purchase Compost It! brand bags and stickers at Clive City Hall or some local grocers and hardware stores. The purchase of the bags and/or stickers covers the cost of curbside collection.
Iowa weather can keep us guessing so if you have yard waste leftover after November, you’ll have one more chance to have it picked up. Winter collection will occur December 28, 2020 – January 8, 2021, on your regular collection day. During winter collection, regular yard waste, as well as live Christmas trees, will be collected.
