Recycling, yard waste, and garbage will not be collected on Monday, May 25, in recognition of Memorial Day. Regular collection is delayed one day for the remainder of the week, with Friday collection occurring on Saturday. 

Apartments & Townhomes

Apartments & Condos are Businesses

Recycling isn't just for single-family homeowners. However, most apartments, condos and townhomes are considered a "business" to local cities. Talk to your landlord, property manager or homeowner's association to see how recycling is handled in your complex. If not offered, work with them to start a recycling program. Most cities have ordinances requiring apartments to offer recycling.

Start a Program – Starting a program at your apartment or condo is similar to starting one at your workplace. Learn more.
Visit a Drop-Off – These Recycling Drop-Offs accept the same household recyclables as Curb It!

Local Company Serves Apartment Dwellers

RecycleMe Iowa is a company offering apartments residents door-side collection.

Townhomes Can Vary

Some townhome associations do participate in Metro Waste Authority’s curbside program, Curb It!, because they have a curb along city streets. How townhomes are served varies in each city. Ask your association or contact your city hall to see if you qualify. If you don't, start a discussion with your association to determine feasibility.
