 Yard Waste Collection Area

The City’s yard waste collection area is open to Gibbon residents on Monday through Saturday from 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.   Residents can drop off leaves, grass clippings, garden waste, branches and small limbs.  For access to the area after regular hours 24/7 a resident can purchase a gate card for $25 at City Hall.

The garbage company will not dump any garbage dumpsters that contain yard waste. It is unlawful to dump yard waste & tree limbs in ditches along county roads and maybe subject to a fine.

There is an ordinance against leaving clippings in the street after mowing and property owners are responsible for mowing alleyways abutting their property. Also City ordinance states that lawns must be kept 8 inches or less.   Residents must also keep their sidewalks clear of debris, foliage and tree branches.

The city’s public recycle dumpster is now located in the yard waste collection area.  This was previously located on Front Street at the former Fox Grain building.
