Weekly curbside yard waste collection is intended to help you dispose of…
- yard trimmings
- sticks and branches
Leaves, grass clippings, garden debris and small brush are collected curbside in bags with the Ottumwa/Wapello logo printed on them. These paper bags can be purchased for $1.00 each at major local grocery stores, at the courtesy counters. Properly prepared light brush and tree limbs can be collected too – brush and branches under 3 inches in diameter must be cut into 36″ lengths, bundled and securely tied into bundles that weigh less than 50 lb. This service is not intended for logs or disposal of entire trees. Yard waste is collected curbside from April 1st to November 30th. Customers may use the drop off at the Landfill for off-season yard waste disposal. Live Christmas trees will still be collected during January. Yard Waste collection south of the Des Moines River is on Tuesdays; collection north of the river is on Thursdays. To ensure curbside collection, place yard waste at the curb by 4:00 AM on your designated day. Yard waste may NOT be disposed of with general trash in the landfill. Call Bridge City Sanitation at 641-682-1700 to have your yard waste collected.
