Mint Green Bag Program
Citizens interested in keeping the litter picked up in their neighborhood can sign up for the Mint Green Bag Program. To sign up complete the application and return it to the Solid Waste & Recycling Office. You will be provided bags to collect litter. The bags can be set out with your normal garbage and do not need an extra garbage sticker.
Adopt a Road Program
The Adopt a Road program is designed for businesses or organizations that want to keep their street or frontage road looking nice. The business or organization commits to performing two litter cleanups a year. The Solid Waste & Recycling Division provides bags, vests, work gloves, trash removal and a sign advertising the commitment of the organization. Call (319) 286-5897 for more information.
