[ARCHIVED] Fall Season Yard Waste Disposal Options

Compost Facility • 300 block of East Main Street
Fall operations at the compost facility continue through the end of November, or until snow cover prevents access, from 7:30 am until dusk, seven days per week. This facility is intended for Cedar Falls resident use only. Residents are allowed to bring brush, logs, leaves, garden waste, and grass clippings to the site. Brush and twigs are processed separately from yard and garden waste. Free wood mulch and compost is available to residents. Residents are required to “load their own,” so be sure to bring containers and shovels.

Fall Curbside Yard Waste Collection Options
On Mondays from October 3–November 28, yard waste carts will be emptied at a reduced fee of $5 per dump.
From October 31–November 11, yard waste carts will be collected citywide as often as possible.
Please remember to…
• Place your yard waste cart at the curb by 7:00 am on the day of collection.
• Place carts at least 3–4 feet away from other objects.
• Remove your cart from the curb once emptied to avoid service of empty carts.
• Please do not put dirt, sod, or ashes in the yard waste carts.

Residents are encouraged to mulch leaves and lawn clippings. Almost without exception, leaves and clippings should be mulched back into the lawn. The benefits of mulching are too numerous and valuable to overlook: from providing nutrients and valuable organic matter to the soil, to saving significant amounts of time working on the lawn. Mulching just makes sense.

Transfer Station • 7–6 pm (Monday–Friday); 8 am–3 pm (Saturday)
Winter Hours (Dec.–Mar.) 7–5 pm (Monday–Friday); 8 am–3 pm (Saturday)
The Transfer Station accepts yard waste daily during normal operations; Mondays are reserved for yard waste only. As an alternative, residents are encouraged to utilize the seasonal Compost Facility for yard waste disposal.

Leaf Vacuum
Cedar Falls residents may utilize the “call-in” leaf vacuum service during October and November.
Call (319) 273-8629 to schedule an appointment. Prior to this service, leaves should be piled
directly behind the curb: between the street and sidewalk. The cost is $50 per visit.
