MUSCATINE, Iowa – The weather may not be true spring time weather but that does not mean that it is not time to get back out and do some yardwork. The City of Muscatine has been offering to help collect and dispose of leaves that have accumulated since last fall with their Spring Leaf Pickup program but time is winding down.
Residents have the opportunity through this Friday (April 20) to call the Department of Public Works (DPW) at 563-263-8933 and schedule a pickup of leaves that have been raked into piles near the curb.
Leaves need to be placed next to the curb by 7 a.m. on the day of the pickup and residents need to avoid placing the piles near parked vehicles which could hinder or postpone collection efforts. Residents are also asked not to mix trash, branches, or other yard waste with their leaf piles.
