Sanitation Department

We provide our business and residential customers with garbage and recycling services. 

Recycling is collected once per week and taken to “Imagine the Possibilities” facility in Maquoketa. Garbage is collected twice per week and taken to the Waste Authority of Jackson County transfer station in Andrew.

All Residential customers with curb pickup are provided with a city owned garbage can for the $20.00 monthly rate. If a customer requires 2 garbage cans, the city will provide one with an extra $5 per monthly charge. There is also an extra charge for customers who place garbage outside of the garbage can. Customers need to provide their own recycling bin of their choice which is included in the garbage rate.
