Open burning of leaves and yard waste is not permitted in North Liberty. For safety reasons, no leaves should be placed in the street. Leaves should be piled within two feet of the curb or edge of road. The vacuum hose can only reach that far. Do not bag leaves. The vacuum cannot pickup bags.
No sticks, branches or any other yard waste should be mixed with the leaves. No other materials should be piled with the leaves. Items picked up by the vacuum hose other than leaves causes serious damage to City equipment. The vacuum hose cannot accommodate sticks and branches. Brush or garden waste may be bundled for pickup on your regular trash day. Two bundles will be picked up at no charge each week. Bundles should be no more than four feet in length and weigh no more than 40 pounds.
Outside of the spring and fall curbside collections, residents have a few options to dispose of leaves:
- Take to citywide cleanup on April 28 at the public works facility
- Put in yard waste bags for Johnson County Refuse, collected on your regular trash and recycling day
- Taken to Iowa City Landfill and Recycling Center, 300 Hebl Ave. SW, Iowa City
