Snow Emergency and Other Important City Information

Residents are reminded to please keep any fire hydrants on their property clear of snow.

Snow emergencies have been announced for the following cities and counties:

Council Bluffs

Carter Lake



Pottawattamie County (In effect through 5 p.m. Tuesday. Vehicles cannot be parked on or along any public county roadway during snow removal operations.)


Council Bluffs Trash and Recycling Collection

Trash and recycling collection in Council Bluffs is canceled today and will resume Tuesday. Collection will be a day behind for the remainder of the week.

The city asked residents to be patient with waste haulers as they overcome difficult weather conditions. Placing trash and recycling on top of snowdrifts is unacceptable and may lead to uncollected waste. Clean a place free of snow and ice within 5 feet of the traveled roadway with a path wide enough to accommodate the collection.

For more information, contact the Council Bluffs Recycling Center at 712-890-5454.

Mobile food pantry postponed to Friday

Food Bank for the Heartland’s mobile food pantry’s visit to the Boys and Girls Club at 815 N. 16th St. has been postponed from Tuesday to Friday, the food bank announced.

It will be on site from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Visitors can stay in their vehicles, and volunteers will load the food for them.
