IOWA CITY (KWWL) --  People in Iowa City will need an appointment for the next month if they want the city to pick-up their yard waste.

The city annopunced Friday it is suspending normal weekly route yard waste services beginning Monday, February 9, 2009 until Friday, March 13, 2009.

The city says it is doing this to conserve fuel and limit expenses during late winter when there is minimal use of the service. Yard waste service will, however, continue to be offered during this period by appointment.

Customers can call the Solid Waste office at 319-356-5180 24-hours ahead of their regular collection day to request pick up service.
