Welcome to the City of Camanche! Throughout the years, Camanche's remarkable sense of community, strong family values, top quality educational system, exceptional Mississippi River recreational
opportunities, and close proximity to commercial and industry sectors continue to provide extraordinary hometown appeal for people of all ages and interests.
One of the earliest thriving frontier towns west of the Mississippi, Camanche is a city with a proud history and bright future…providing its residents and visitors with a warm, friendly Midwestern quality of life.
The fall large item collection for the residents in the City of Camanche is scheduled for October 16 and 23. If your garbage is picked up on Mondays, your large item collection will be Tuesday, October 16. If your garbage is picked up on Thursdays, your large item pick up will be on Tuesday, October 23. 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 cannot be weighed or measured, the amount should be limited to no more than a small pickup load. The contractor will take the amount they feel is reasonable and leave the rest.
Because of limitations imposed by the State or County, there are many items that cannot 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, VCRs, stereos, printers, etc.) car batteries, paint or chemicals, construction debris, yard waste, pipes, swing sets, and fence posts. We cannot create an all-inclusive list, but this should give you an idea of the types of things that cannot be taken. If you are unsure, please call City Hall at 259-8342 and we will find out.

The Parks & Recreation Commission recently adopted an Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA) Transition Plan. This plan is designed to provide a path by which the City can make its parks more accessible to those with disabilities. This is a first step towards other major planning for the parks and the City overall. You can review the plan by downloading the PDF below.
Camanche City Council recently adopted a 2 year street plan for road work. The plan is provided below in a PDF. We will soon be working on a 3-5 year plan.
The City of Camanche conducted a survey of the community to get feedback on where we stand, and what people identify as important to the community. The purpose is to help identify a new branding for the City. The results have been collected, analyzed, and compiled into a document. You can review it by clicking the .pdf file link below. It is a large file, so please be aware before you download that it will take up some space.
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
