Spring is around the corner, which means it may be time to renew your Compost It! premium cart service.

Metro Waste Authority will begin picking up yard waste on Monday, April 5, and service will continue through November. Collection day for Johnston residents is the same as garbage and recycling.

A few reminders:

  • Place yard waste cart at the curb by 6 a.m.
  • Do not mix yard waste with other solid waste.
  • If your waste does not fit into your cart, consider waiting until your next collection day, or place extra material into a "kraft style" bag with a Compost It! sticker, or Compost It! bag.
  • If yard waste pickup was missed, please call Metro Waste Authority at (515) 244-0021.
  • Metro Waste Authority requires customers to renew Compost It! premium cart service for the season. No discounted stickers will be offered midway through the season.

We would ask that residents please return the 2021 renewal form and a $105 check to the City of Johnston, 6221 Merle Hay Rd., Johnston, IA 50131, by Wednesday, March 31. Renewal payments received after March 31 may delay the service start date.
