Dubuque yard waste collection begins April 4


The weekly curbside collection of yard waste for City of Dubuque solid waste customers will begin on April 4.

All yard waste must be placed in paper yard waste bags which display a single-use yard waste sticker, a rigid solid waste container with a single-use yard waste sticker looped on the handle, in rigid solid waste containers displaying the City's 2011 annual yard waste decal, or in larger subscribed city tipper carts.

All brush and limbs can also be bundled with City of Dubuque brush ties or an attached single-use sticker. Plastic bags with yard waste will not be collected.

Generic paper yard waste bags, single use yard waste stickers for bags and cans and brush ties are available in most grocery, hardware, and discount stores throughout the city.

The single-use yard waste stickers cost $1.30 each and are sold on sheets of five for $6.50. Brush ties cost $1.30 each. The 2011 annual yard waste stickers cost $30 each and are only available from the City's Utility Billing Service Center by walk-up, mail-in coupon or phone at 563-589-4144.

Yard waste is collected on the regular solid waste pickup day. Yard waste should be kept separate and not mixed with trash. It must be set out by 6 a.m., the day of collection and not weigh over 40 pounds. Containers have a maximum size of 35 gallons.
