Get rid of broken, unusable items for free garbage pickup, and donate usable items to ReStore
Mayor's Clean Up WeekMayor’s Clean Up Week in Coralville offers free curbside pickup of large, broken items that won’t fit in trash carts (such as a roll of carpet, a piece of broken furniture, or a broken bathroom fixture) on your City trash day from October 3-7, 2022. Some restrictions apply. This free collection is available to Coralville residences with city trash and recycling services.
Place items curbside up to 24 hours before or by 7:00 am on your regular trash collection day. If something is not picked up, remove it from the curb within 24 hours after collection day. Metal is picked up by a separate truck to be recycled, and may be picked up on a day other than your regular collection day.
GuidelinesBefore setting anything at the curb, please note the following restrictions:
Smaller items belong in your trash cart; if your cart is full, put extra items in a garbage bag with a trash sticker. Small loose items left on the ground will not be picked up. Put yard waste in recyclable Coralville yard waste bags or a 33-gallon container with an annual yard waste sticker.
What to do with usable itemsDo not throw away usable items. If you have usable furniture or building and housing materials, donate them to area agencies, rather than sending them to the landfill. Iowa Valley Habitat for Humanity ReStore, Houses into Homes, Goodwill, or other area agencies may accept certain items. Where to donate usable items
Recycle cardboardDo not leave items in cardboard boxes; cardboard is banned from the landfill and must be recycled. High volumes of materials are collected during Mayor’s Clean Up Week. If you have a large amount of cardboard to recycle, take it any time to the Coralville Drop-Off Recycling Center at 950 Hughes Street or any drop-off location in Johnson County. All cardboard must be flattened. Learn about cardboard recycling
