When it comes to disposing of yard waste, YARDY is the tool for the job! YARDY isYardyCart a large green cart that can easily be wheeled to and from the curb on collection day. Your YARDY cart is collected using an automated arm. To reduce property damage and promote efficiency, please keep carts 3 feet away from obstacles (fences, poles, trees and other containers).

When are YARDY carts collected?
YARDY carts are collected on your normal garbage day throughout the year - even in the middle of winter!

YARDY accepts yard waste and other compostable materials.
Listed below are just a few items that can be placed in your YARDY cart:

Yard waste  Other Compostables 
Leaves  Fruit & Vegetable Peelings 
Sticks/twigs (5 in. max. diameter)  Paper plates, napkins & paper towels 
Grass clippings  Dryer lint & human or pet hair 
  Baked goods



Extra Yard Waste
If you have more yard waste than will fit in your YARDY cart, here are a couple of options:

  • Separate brush into 2x3 foot bundles weighing less than 40 pounds. The maximum diameter for branches is 5 inches. Use biodegradable twine to bundle and set next to your YARDY cart for collection.
  • Purchase a second YARDY cart by calling the Solid Waste & Recycling office at 319-286-5897
  • Utilize the spring and fall leaf vacuum collection program.
  • Kraft bags are only collected during the spring and fall Leaf Vacuum Collection times. Please use your YARDY cart and the above suggestions to dispose of extra yard waste.
