Christmas is coming slightly early for Iowa City households still waiting for one of the city’s new 65-gallon recycling carts. The final stage of the distribution of carts to curbside recycling customers will take place from Dec.10 to Dec. 22.

Distribution of the blue-lidded carts began in February. Support for the purchase of the new carts and their delivery to all of Iowa City’s 16,000 curbside recyclers came from a $106,000 grant from The Recycling Partnership, a national nonprofit.

Anyone who hasn’t received a new cart by the end of December should contact the Department of Resource Management at 319-356-5151. The city has not yet provided an update on the status of composting containers ordered by Iowa Citians earlier this year; more information should be available in 2019.
