Waste & Recycling Workers Week, June 12-18 2022, is celebrated in Iowa City to thank and honor all the people working in the waste and recycling industry. 

The proper collection and disposal of waste, recycling, and organic waste are integral to preventing litter, disease, and negative environmental impact. The City of Iowa City values and celebrates workers in the public and private trash, recycling, and organics industry in our community.

The best way you can say “thank you” to those who collect your waste materials is to use your programs correctly.

If you are an Iowa City curbside customer, see program changes and learn how to correctly use programs:

If you are a customer of a private hauler in Iowa City, recycling program information per hauler is available at icgov.org/apartmentrecycling.
