In an effort to meet the State of Iowa's waste reduction goals, Iowa City has implemented garbage and recycling programs to encourage waste reduction. These programs are designed to promote recycling and re-use of materials rather than disposal of these materials into the City's landfill. This division serves the residents of Iowa City by providing a high level of service, while still emphasizing the safety of its workers.
Garbage, yard waste and recycling services apply only to single family residences and multiple dwellings of four units or fewer.
New residents must enroll for utilities service. In Iowa City Utilities include water, sewer, garbage and recycling services. All these charges are included in one monthly bill mailed to the homeowner. Sign up today.
