    MUSCATINE – Iowa – The Muscatine Transfer Station will mail out Compost stickers to residents of Muscatine and Fruitland who do not currently have one according to David Popp, Solid Waste Manager for the City of Muscatine. The Compost sticker identifies residents of Muscatine and Fruitland who can take yard waste to the Compost Facility for free.

    Stickers would normally be available for pickup at the Transfer Station, Public Works, or City Hall but these facilities are currently closed to the public in response to COVID-19 guidelines.

     Residents who do not already have a sticker would need to call the Transfer Station, Public Works, or City Hall to request one. The Transfer Station staff will confirm that the resident does not already have a sticker and confirm their residency before mailing out the sticker.

    Residents requesting a sticker will be asked for their name, address, phone number, and make and model of the vehicle they will use to bring waste to the Compost Facility.

    “We will try to mail these out daily so that there is a short turnaround time for the residents to get their stickers,” Popp said.

    Only residents who currently have a Compost sticker will be allowed entry into the Compost Facility. The attendant will turn away drivers who not have a sticker at the present time as the attendant will not be accepting cash or payment by check from non-residents.

    The site is located at the Muscatine Transfer Station, 1000 S. Houser St., Muscatine. Regular hours are 12-6 p.m. Sunday through Friday and from 9 a.m.-6 p.m. on Saturdays.

    CITY STILL PICKING UP CURBSIDE

    The City of Muscatine continues to offer curbside pickup of grass clippings, leaves, and garden waste placed in City of Muscatine Yard Waste bags on the residents’ regular refuse collection day. These bags are available at Hy-Vee, Hy-Vee Main Street, and Fareway. They will also be available at the Transfer Station when that facility is open to the public.

    Tree limbs and other trimmings from trees and shrubs will also be collected curbside as long as they are bundled with string or cord in four-foot lengths. Contact Public Works (563-263-8933) for curbside collection of larger tree limbs.

    Bags, tree limbs, and other trimmings should be placed near refuse container on the day of scheduled pickup.

    Visit Yard Waste Collection for more details.

    SPRING LEAF COLLECTION

    Spring leaf collection will be conducted April 6-17 according to officials at the Department of Public Works. Crews will be out in zones 1-4 during the week of April 6 and in zones 5-8 the week of April 13. Residents in one of those zones should have their leaves out by the corresponding Monday. Residents can also contact Public Works (563-263-8933) after April 1 to schedule a day for leaf collection.

    • 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.

    Please call by 3:30 p.m. two (2) days before your regular refuse collection day to schedule a curbside bulk waste pick up and leave a message with your name and phone number.
