Yard Waste and Grass Clippings

The City of Missouri Valley, IA, would greatly appreciate it if you made sure your yard clipping’s do not go in the street. Yard waste clogs our storm drains. This causes the water to overflow out of the drains, making a big mess for everyone.

According to the City Code 135.03, it is unlawful for any person to throw or deposit, on any street or alley, any leaves, grass, or any other debris likely to be washed into the storm sewer and clog the storm sewer.
