Bad Weather & Holiday Collection
Only three holidays per year affect collection schedules in Clark County: Thanksgiving, Christmas, and New Year's Day. Collection days are shifted one day later for the rest of the holiday week, i.e. Friday rather than Thursday and Saturday rather than Friday.
The City of Camas observes the above holidays plus Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, President's Day, Memorial Day, Independence Day, Labor Day and Veteran's Day. If your regular garbage day falls on a major holiday, it will be picked up the next regular working day. Also in Camas, for Thanksgiving Thursday garbage will be picked up on the following Monday, and Friday garbage will be picked up the following Tuesday.
If weather conditions make it unsafe for the trucks to collect garbage and recycling, collection will be cancelled until conditions improve to the extent that it is safe to resume collection throughout the area. Cancellations will be announced on the Waste Connections website and over local radio and TV news broadcasts.
It must be safe for the collection trucks to complete their regular routes without endangering life or property; please be aware that conditions outside your own neighborhood may prevent the safe collection and transport of your materials, and that it must be safe for the drivers to pick them up.
If collection is cancelled for only one day, collection days are shifted one day later for the rest of the week, i.e. Friday rather than Thursday and Saturday rather than Friday.
If collection is cancelled for more than one day, cancelled collections will be made up on your next regular collection day, either the following week or the first following week that it is safe to resume collection. In the case of these longer cancellations customers whose regular collection day is cancelled should bring their containers in off the curb until their next regular collection day.
