Yard Waste

When is yard waste collected?

Yard waste is picked up from late March until late November, weather permitting, on regular garbage collection days. Like trash and recycling service, the City of Coralville provides yard waste collection services for single family and duplex housing only. See the map of collection days.

Yard Waste Collection for 2019  

Note: Due to a heaver than expected volume of early season yard waste, the City will resume yard waste collection on regular garbage collection days for all routes on April 8, rather than April 15 as previously stated. Please contact the Streets Department at 319.248.1740 if your yard waste pickup was inadvertently missed due to the schedule change.

  • Monday and Tuesday routes: picked up on Tuesdays on March 26 and April 2
  • Wednesday and Thursday routes: picked up on Thursdays on March 28 and April 4 
Beginning the week of April 8
  • Yard waste collection resumes on regular garbage collection days
