Camanche Large Item Pickup

The fall large item collection for the residents in the City of Camanche is scheduled for October 24 and 31.  If your garbage is picked up on Mondays, your large item collection will be Tuesday, October 24.  If your garbage is picked up on Thursdays, your large item pick up will be on Tuesday, October 31.  If the collection is not completed on Tuesday, it will continue the next day until finished.


            There has to be a reasonable limit to the amount of material that can be set out for large item collection.  Since it can’t be weighed or measured, the amount should be limited to no more than a small pickup load.  The contractor will take the amount he feels is reasonable and leave the rest.  If items are left behind, there should be an orange tag indicating why it wasn’t taken.


            Because of the limitation imposed by the State or County, there are many items that can’t be taken to the landfill, or require payment of a separate fee.  For those reasons, these items are not eligible for the large item collection: tires, appliances (washers, dryers, refrigerators, microwaves, etc.) electronics (televisions, computers, monitors, VCR’s, stereos, printers, etc.) car batteries, paint or chemicals, construction debris, yard waste, pipes, swing sets, and fence posts.  We can’t create an all-inclusive list, but this should give you an idea of the types of things that can’t be taken.  If you are unsure, please call City Hall at 259-8342 and we’ll find out.

Public Packet

Here is a new effort to aid in communication with the public.  We are now creating a public packet for folks to have a better idea of what is going on in the City.  We hope to keep this going and add even more information moving forward.  Please give us your feedback on the idea!  The packets for public can be found by clicking the button below
