[ARCHIVED] Cedar Falls Kicks Off City-Wide Clean-Up Week

Cedar Falls is excited to kick off a city-wide clean-up effort in observation of Earth Week, April 19 through April 24. 

During this time, the community is invited to collect refuse and litter in heavily traveled areas of the city including trails, sidewalks, and roadsides. Citizens, including neighborhood associations and businesses, are also encouraged to organize clean-up activities in their areas. If businesses have any questions about getting involved in the efforts, please email

"From neighbors to co-workers, this is a great way to connect with others after a harsh winter and promote teamwork for a community cause," said Amanda Huisman, Communications Specialist at the City of Cedar Falls.

To assist with the clean-up week, Cedar Falls Public Works is providing blue 30-gallon collection bags at no charge. They are available at the Public Works Building (2200 Technology Parkway) and the Transfer Station (1524 State Street) during normal business hours.  Once filled, the blue bags can be deposited near the shelter areas at Overman Park, Holmes Park, Clay Street Park, Seerley Park, Neighbors Park, and Pfeiffer Park for pick-up; for other areas please contact Public Works at (319) 273-8629 to arrange a special pickup. The blue collection bags are for use in clean-up week activities only. Please place bags in groupings to allow for easier collection (do not put in individual lines alongside roadways). 

"We do want to remind all participants that trash must be bagged and secured before placing it for collection. This not only makes it easier for the Public Works crew to pick up, but it ensures the trash stays together," said Huisman. "Additionally, please do not overfill trash bags and always double-check they are tied tightly at the top."

For those wishing to participate, Cedar Falls Public Works recommends these high-traffic, high-visible areas: Brandilynn Blvd and Viking Road from HWY 58 to Menards, Greenhill Road from Hudson Road to HWY 58, HWY 58 to Cedar Heights Drive, S. Main Street from University Avenue to Greenhill Road, College Street (18th Street to 29th Street), Seerley Blvd from College Street to Main Street, Center Street, Lone Tree Road, and the Grand Blvd/Cedar Heights area from East Street to the City Limits.
