The snow from the Thanksgiving blizzard has melted away and the City of Muscatine will resume the Leaf Pickup Program, at least for the next two weeks.
Brian Stineman, Department of Public Works (DPW) director, said that the city will use two trucks over the course of the next two weeks, so long as weather permits. The DPW suspended the program for the Thanksgiving holiday and the winter storm that followed, just as crews worked to finish leaf collection in Zone Six.
City crews will work in Zones Seven and Eight (the northeast quadrant of Muscatine) before making a final pass through all zones.
Residents who have piles of leaves can call the Department of Public Works at (563)-263-8933 to add themselves to the list for possible late pickups. Alternately, residents can opt to bag the leaves themselves and transport them to the compost site at the Recycling Center and Transfer Station on Houser Street.
The compost site at the City of Muscatine Recycling Center and Transfer Station will operate on a limited schedule for the next two weeks before officially closing for the season on December 16th, 2018.
Residents may use the compost site from 7:00 am to 3:30 pm, with the site unattended. Anyone wishing to obtain firewood during these hours or in need of further assistance should check in first with the scale attendant at the Transfer Station.
The DPW set the compost site’s final day for Saturday, Dec. 15th, with the site both open and attended from 9:00 am to 3:00 pm. For further assistance, contact the Recycling Center and Transfer Station at (563)-263-9689.
