UPDATE: As of January 1, 2012 the Johnson County Board of Commissioners imposed changes to the regulations concerning garbage, recycling and yard waste collection. The most significant change is that each and every household is limited to 96 gallons of garbage pickup each week. This amounts to a filled 65 gallon trash container and one garbage bag, or a 96 gallon container. For those who have more than 96 gallons of garbage, stickers can be purchased at City Hall for $1.25 each for each additional 35-gallon garbage bag set out for collection.
Yard waste will still be collected as it has been in 2011. Yard waste is to be placed in a designated container to be emptied, or in the paper yard waste bags. Yard waste placed in plastic garbage bags will not be picked up. Yard waste should also be placed on the opposite side of the driveway from the garbage container along with the recycling containers.
