The Sanitation department provides solid waste pickup for homes and businesses. Pickup is performed daily Monday-Thursday depending upon area of the City. See Our Community tab above and look up Garbage/Solid Waste for details on pickup, recycling, green waste, and other related information.

The Sanitation Department strives to provide reliable service throughout the City. Private service contractors are not allowed in the City in order to provide cost-effective garbage collection service. The City provides dumpsters of varying sizes and roll-off containers for larger loads. All solid waste is hauled to the Dickinson County Landfill, located east of Arnolds Park. Dumpsters and roll-offs can be ordered through City Hall at 336-1871.

For operating efficiency, the Sanitation Department is supervised by the Street Superintendent. Staff from both divisions supports each other when the need arises, such as heavy snow storms and when the City conducts its annual Spring Clean Up.
