Welcome to Hartley, Iowa!

Hartley is a small community with an entertaining atmosphere that attracts young people and families to visit and stay. Hartley builds on its traditional agricultural strengths in diverse and innovative ways.  Hartley supports and attracts a range of new and diverse technology based businesses, with an economy that is supported by a variety of recreational activities and events.

Much of Hartley's local development has occured in Hartley's Industrial Park as well as new home development on the east side. Work from the Hartley Economic Development Committee is helping to ensure more development in Hartley. With the addition of Valero's Ethanol Plant, we hope that more businesses and families will be attracted to the area.








Hartley Clean Up Days

Hartley’s Fall Clean Up is scheduled to begin Monday, September 26th. City crews will start with collection of regular garbage followed by pick up of items not normally collected on the regular, weekly garbage route. Crews will make one pass by your residence collecting regular garbage, and one pass to collect other items. 

These other items must be placed in a separate pile near the site where you place your regular garbage for weekly collection. Branches and bagged or boxed leaves should also be placed in a separate pile and placed at your curbside. Branches, tires, and white goods are typically picked up last. We cannot pick up some items such as oil, paint, automotive parts, anything toxic, and chemicals such as weed killer and insecticides. 

A fee is required for some items. All white goods (ranges, clothes washers, dryers) are $5.00 each.

Each car tire is $5.00, truck tire $14.00, and tractor tires are $30.00. There is also a $5.00 fee for each computer monitor, printer, and tower. Office copiers will be charged a $35.00 fee. 

Each television will require a fee of $15.00. There is no charge for other electronics such as VCR’s, stereos, and radios. Construction and demolition material will require the use of a dumpster-check with City Hall for dumpster availability.
