Hiawatha helps residents with spring cleaning
by Cynthia Petersen Correspondent · May 1st, 2017

Hiawatha is helping its residents get rid of the cobwebs of winter and do a little spring cleaning.

A recycling event was held April 22, as part of the Earth Day celebration. Old electronics and other recyclable materials were part of the efforts by the City of Hiawatha to help residents recycle or dispose of items no longer wanted.

Eye glasses and cell phones were donated by residents and old flags were disposed of, while new flags were available for purchase.

There is still time to sign up for the annual city-wide garage sale on Saturday, May 6. Residents can contact City Hall at 319-393-1515 to sign up or for more information.

Maps will be available a few days before the sale at City Hall and other locations in Hiawatha.

Hiawatha is also providing an amnesty pick-up of items that generally are not accepted by regular trash pick-up. Items must be set out on the curb Monday, May 1, by 7 a.m.

Broken glass must be put in a plastic bucket or other suitable container. Small items must be placed on or in trash cans.

City officials ask that residents keep large appliances separate from other items and that railroad ties, lumber, and carpets are cut up and bundled together. Windows and doors with broken glass, as well as TVs and monitors will not be picked up.
