City of Muscatine will be picking up leaves from April 1, 2019 through April 12, 2019. Please call no later than Wednesday, April 10, 2019 to have your leaves picked up at the curb.
Leaves should be placed near, but not beyond the curb and should be within reach of the leaf vacuum. Leaves should be free of tree branches and twigs as they can cause the leaf vacuums to clog up. All leaves must be placed outside of fenced areas. Leaves are not to be placed in the street to avoid clogging storm drains. Leaves should not be placed in street or extend into traffic lanes, thereby creating traffic hazards. Leaves should not be placed around obstacles such as mailbox posts, sign posts and light poles. Crews will not pick up leaves mixed with debris, logs, branches, rocks, plastic, metal or glass containers, or any other types of refuse. Leaves should not be placed on City cul-de-sacs, vacant land or City property except on the public right-of-way along the curb/shoulder area.
The Compost Site is open for the season!! It is open Sunday through Friday from 12:00 noon until 6:00 pm. Open on Saturday from 9:00 am to 6:00 pm.
Remember: Leaf burning and all open burning is banned by city ordinance.
