Weekly yard waste collection will begin on Monday, April 2 in Johnston, and will continue every Monday and Tuesday (your regular garbage collection day) through Tuesday, November 27. Yard waste is only collected in Compost It! bags or brown paper lawn bags with a Compost It! sticker attached, by 6:00 a.m. on collection day. Tree debris must be bundled with a Compost it! sticker attached. Bags and stickers can be purchased at Johnston City Hall and locations around the metro.
Residents who have a large amount of yard waste on a regular basis, the Compost It! Premium Services program is available for an additional annual fee. Please contact the Utility Services Department at 515.727.7772.
