Garbage & Recycling Haulers

Garbage/Recycle Residential Routes

Please use the residential pick-up recycling service instead of the downtown container. For curbside recycling pickup, boxes do not need to be flattened and may be placed on the ground; other items may be placed in boxes or bags. Recyclables: Plastic (1-7), paper, cardboard, tin cans & foil containers. No glass. (

Recycling pickup starts Thursdays at 7:30a. Stay updated on this schedule on De Kruif’s Facebook page.

Place your can on the edge of the curb. Please make sure the sheels are facing your home, and the opening is facing the street. All garbage must fit in your can with the lid closed. There must be 3 ft of clearance around your can. Please do not place next to mailboxes, light poles, parked cars or other obstructions.

Garbage must fit in the container ($3 extra tags’ available at Fareway or Hy-Vee).
