Trash Pick up

The 2021 Columbia City RESIDENTIAL City-wide junk pickup will be as follows:

April 30th, 2021 for WEST SIDE, ONE DAY ONLY!

Please ensure that ALL JUNK is placed out by 5:00AM on the day of pickup. Junk Clean Up Days are only once per year, and one pass only. There will be NO RETURN TRIPS. Do not allow anyone to dump Junk on your property (Ordinance 53.26).

The City will be divided down Main St. (ST RD 9).

TIRES (maximum of 15 total), STOVES, WASHERS, DRYERS, HOT WATER HEATERS, DISH WASHERS, REFRIGERATORS, AIR CONDITIONERS, FREEZERS, BATTERIES AND ANY OTHER APPLIANCES.However, You MUST call City Hall at 260-248-5100 by May 7th, 2021 (items will be picked up throughout the week) and get on the list in order to have these items picked up. These items will be picked up May 10th (must be out by 5A.M.). If you fail to follow the procedure your items will not be picked up and you will be responsible for disposal.

THE FOLLOWING ITEMS WILL NOT BE PICKED UP:

(Further, these items should not be placed in your trash tote.)

Construction material, carpet, and any other items should not be over 6 feet in length. Items longer than 6 feet will result in nothing being picked up at the residence. Anyone tearing down buildings such as sheds, garages, or remodeling large areas should privately contract with a hauler for a “roll-off” dumpster. Opened and dried paint cans will be picked up.

Please help us by following these few guidelines. Your cooperation will make this year’s junk pick up a success. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact the Mayor’s office at 260-248-5111.
