The city of North Liberty is offering curbside collection of flood-damaged property all week following last week’s heavy rainfall.

Also, the city of Iowa City wants people to know that damaged carpet can be recycled, as long as it is dried out first.

The carpet can be taken to the Iowa City Landfill and Recycling Center, 3900 Hebl Ave. The recycling fee is $38.50 per ton for Iowa City residents and businesses and $43.50 for other residents and businesses in Johnson County.

Wet carpet cannot be recycled and will be more expensive to landfill because of the added weight, according to a news release.
