Final 2018 Curbside Yard Waste Collection Scheduled for November 26

yard waste

Monday, Nov. 26 is the last scheduled day in 2018 for Waukee curbside yard waste collection. Yard waste is vegetation including materials such as grass clippings, leaves, brush and garden waste. Here are some tips to ensure your yard waste gets picked up:

  • Yard waste must be put into biodegradable bags or reusable containers with a 40-pound maximum weight.
  • Sticks, brush and branches must be cut into four-foot lengths and bundled (with string or twine) with a 40-pound maximum weight per bundle.
  • Please do not use your garbage or recycling containers for yard waste.
  • Place approved items at the curb for collection prior to 7 a.m. each Monday.

And as the beautiful autumn leaves fall, the Waukee Stormwater Department is sharing tips for proper leaf removal, as decomposing leaves can make their way to bodies of water and "steal" oxygen from fish.

Instead of raking, suck them in with a leaf blower in reverse, mow over leaves or use them as mulch.

  • Add leaves to your compost pile.
  • Never rake leaves into the street, as they may end up in storm drains.

For any garbage, recycling or yard waste questions, please call ASI at 515-964-5229.
