Household Waste Accepted This Weekend

Residents in eastern Iowa can safely dispose of hazardous household waste this weekend. A mobile household hazardous waste collection event has been set for Saturday at the East Side Recycling Center in Iowa City. The collection, sponsored by the Iowa City Landfill and Recycling Center, will be held from 8 a.m. to 11 a.m., and there is no cost to participate. Residents of Iowa City, Johnson County, Kalona and Riverside may dispose of one box of household hazardous waste per household. That waste includes oil-based paint, household cleaners, non-alkaline batteries such as rechargeable or cell phone batteries, sharps, motor oil and other automotive fluids. No latex paint will be accepted.
