The City of Fayette's Fall Clean-up Day for landfill items will be Tuesday, October 27, 2020. Fayette citizens must pay the cost that the Fayette County Transfer Station charges the city. A list of landfill fees for items needing to be picked up is listed below and will be posted at City Hall, the Post Office and the Bank.  It can also be found on the City of Fayette’s website www.fayetteiowa.com. Citizens should call 563-425-4316 or come by City Hall before Friday, October 23, to notify City Hall of any items needing to be picked up and your address.


The Public Works Department will only pick up items that the landfill will take, NOT cardboard, yard waste, liquids, toxic or hazardous waste, lead based paints, dead animals, etc.  Also, no garbage or trash that would be taken by the garbage haulers or that you can recycle.

Please don’t set out yard waste or items if you haven’t contacted City Hall.  Thank you.

The Fayette Public Works employees will begin leaf pick-up on Monday, Oct. 19th, 2020.  Pick up will be on Mondays (weather permitting). If they are unable to get to all the houses on Monday, then they will pick-up leaves at the houses they missed on Tuesday. Place raked leaves on the City parkway or right-of-way between the sidewalk and the back of the curb.  If you don’t have a curb, then place on the grassy area near the street.  Please do NOT place in the street!  No tree branches, sticks or garbage should be mixed with the leaves because they will puncture the vacuum hose. 

The City Yard Waste Disposal Site is open on Wednesdays from 2PM-4PM and on Saturdays from 8AM-10AM for disposing of branches, sticks, leaves and other yard waste.  A Yard Waste key may be checked-out at Fayette City Hall during office hours.  Yard waste may also be burned but burning of trash is prohibited.  City Ordinance 135.08 prohibits the burning of leaves on any curb and gutter or on any paved or surfaced street or alley.  A fire burns not only the leaves, but also the tar/oil in asphalt and cracks can crack the concrete.

Many donated their time, services and money to make the Fayette County Freedom Rock a reality and now the one-of-a-kind painting is almost complete. Please join us for a short ceremony and revealing of the Fayette County Freedom Rock on Friday, September 18, 2020, at 305 W. Water Street in Fayette, Iowa. We will reveal the newly painted rock at 12:30PM followed by a short ceremony and draw a winner of the quilt (purchase a quilt ticket for $100 prior to the drawing to get your name in, all money will be used for the Freedom Rock expenses and no more than 50 tickets will be sold). Financial donations for the Fayette County Freedom Rock are still being collected (please make checks payable to the City of Fayette and write Freedom Rock on the check). Visit https://www.facebook.com/TheFreedomRock or https://www.thefreedomrock.com/ to learn more about the Freedom Rock Tour and the artist.
