Trash Collection

The City of Coralville provides trash collection and recycling services for single family and duplex housing only.

Coralville uses an automated garbage pickup system; residents may choose a 35-gallon trash container or a 65-gallon trash container. The cart is property of the City of Coralville and must remain at the property upon termination of service.

Garbage Stickers for Extra Trash

Purchase a $3 single-use garbage sticker for any additional bag of trash (up to 33 gallons, 40-pound weight limit) that does not fit in the trash cart. Bag stickers can be purchased at:
  • Coralville City Hall, 1512 7th St.
  • Coralville Hy-Vee, 1914 8th St.
Only one additional tagged bag, placed on top of the closed lid of the can, will be picked up per week. Tagged bags placed on the ground will not be picked up and require a special appointment.
