Corrugated cardboard is recyclable and will not be allowed in your trash beginning January 2, 2018.
The Iowa City Landfill is instituting a corrugated cardboard ban for the entire landfill service area, which includes Coralville. The cardboard ban will divert about 4,000 tons of cardboard from the landfill each year.
Coralville customers who place recyclable corrugated cardboard in their garbage will receive a notice and their trash cart will not be emptied.
All curbside recycling containers must be City-issued yellow bins with black lids.
Each home may have two recycling bins upon request. Check out bins at City Hall at no charge. If your bin is lost, stolen, or damaged, you are responsible for the cost of a replacement bin ($15).
If you move, leave the recycling bin at your service address.
Whether using one or two containers, recyclables must be sorted. How to sort
If using two containers, using one bin for paper and cardboard and the other bin for separated metals and plastics.
Recyclables may be taken to the Coralville Drop-off Recycling Center, which accepts the same items as curbside recycling. The former Recycling Center on E. 7th Street has closed permanently to allow for continued growth in the Iowa River Landing.
