Solid Waste & Recycling

The Spring large item collection for the residents in the City of Camanche is scheduled beginning at 7:00AM on May 6th.  All items will be collected during this time frame only, once they leave a neighborhood, they will NOT come back through a second time.  Have your items out no earlier than May 1-5.  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 he feels 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, cement, bricks, cinder blocks, concrete or fence posts.  If you are unsure, please call City Hall at 259-8342 and we will find out.

Please check the guidelines here if you have any questions about what can or cannot be placed in the recycling bin.


Your bins should be placed with the lid hinge towards your house.  Please try to keep the cans a few feet apart so the equipment can safely perform its function.


If you want to change your container size, please print out the form below and turn it in to City Hall.  There is a one time service fee for exchanging a can.


You can have more than one solid waste or recycling can at your location for an additional fee.  Please contact City Hall for more information.
