MFor immediate release:
Due to changes initiated by the Garbage and Recycling contractor, the City of Camanche has found it necessary to make a change in its solid waste program. The City has entered into a new agreement with Republic Services as its new solid waste contractor. Due to staffing capacity, the City is suspending curb side recycling. Containers for recycling will be located at the Police Department parking lot on Washington Blvd. until curb side recycling can be restored. Staffing will also necessitate an added day of trash collection. Monday routes are still to be placed out as normal. Thursday routes must be placed out on Tuesday. The full routes will be completed by Wednesday. If your trash was not completed on the scheduled day, please leave it out. It will get picked up.
This is a short notice solution to an issue that was presented to us at the last minute. The city is grateful to the staff of Republic Services for being able to address our community's needs in an immediate manner.
We understand this is not ideal and we will be working towards restoring our normally expected service and we are considering all options.
Please be patient during this transition. If you are a Monday route and your garbage has not been collected by Tuesday afternoon, please call City Hall by close of business Tuesday. Thursday routes that are not collected by Wednesday at Noon, please call at that time.
We appreciate your patience during this transition. We truly had no warning in getting this prepared, but we will work with the new service provider to get everything addressed. As time goes by, we expect service to be more normalized.
The City would like to extend its gratitude to the staff of River City Disposal for their years of dedicated service to the community.
Calendar parking dates began November 15. Last year the City changed the rules for calendar parking. You only need to move your vehicle when the City issues snow events. We make those announcements here in our website, on our Facebook page, and through local radio. We will issue those announcements when the some forecast indicates a need to get the plows on the road. You do not need to move your vehicle on sunny days.
