|COVID-19 Garbage and Recycling Update|
There has been an increase in transfer station visits which mean longer wait times and a decrease in the ability to maintain social distancing measures. Please avoid making trips to the recycling and transfer stations unless absolutely necessary. Consider these options to avoid trips to the transfer station, reduce contact with others and stay safe:
EXTRA GARBAGE - For an additional fee, extra garbage can be set out next to your garbage container.
BULKY ITEMS - Furniture, appliances, electronics or tires can be picked up at your curbside for a cost. This service is available in Vancouver, Ridgefield, Washougal and rural areas of Clark County. Waste Connections Rates (change link to: https://wcnorthwest.com/commercial-rates) page provides a detailed list of accepted items. Camas customers can call the city's Utility Customer Service line at 360.834.2462 for details on microwave and small furniture pick-ups.
Contact Waste Connections at 360.892.5370 or firstname.lastname@example.org to schedule a bulky waste pick-up or to learn more about fees for garbage, recycling and yard debris extras. One to two weeks advance notice is recommended.
