Yard waste season is coming to an end. The Compost It! curbside yard waste collection will end for the season on Tuesday, Nov. 23 in Johnston.
The program accepts small twigs and branches, leaves and lawn clippings, as well as any garden vegetation. Just avoid dirt, mulch, rocks, and food.
To have your yard waste collected until the end of the season, be sure to tag it, bag it, or wheel it:
Iowa weather always keeps us guessing, so if you have yard waste left after November, you’ll have one more chance to have it collected. Winter collection will occur December 27, 2021 – January 7, 2022, on your regular collection day. During winter collection, regular yard waste, as well as live Christmas trees, will be collected.
