Amnesty Week June 12th-18th

Remsen’s City-Wide Clean up Week June 12 – 18,  2021

The City of Remsen is declaring an amnesty from the landfill disposal cost during the above designated dates of June 12 –18, 2021. Up to 2,000 pounds per household of “throw away” material delivered to the Plymouth County Landfill in Le Mars, Iowa will be paid by the City of Remsen and not billed to the household. Only residential properties (not commercial or industrial) can participate. Each household that wishes to participate must make their own arrangements and is responsible for hauling their material to the landfill during this amnesty period.

The City WILL NOT be picking up items at curbside as done prior to 2014. Do not place items in front of your house at curb side.

• HAZARDOUS WASTE (paint, thinner, pesticide, insecticide, herbicide, batteries, fertilizer, fuels, oils)

Citizens must pay aper item demanufacturing charge at time of drop off for any “White Goods”. These include: air conditioners, microwaves, washers, dryers, refrigerators, freezers, fluorescent lights, water heaters, furnaces, dishwashers, dehumidifiers, ranges, ovens, trash compactors, and other cooling units.

Water Restrictions

Due to the current dry conditions, we are asking our residents to begin to be conservative in their water use.


We are asking residents who wish to water their lawns to do so on an odd/even schedule. If you have an odd house number, you may water your lawn on odd calendar dates. We also ask that you water your lawns during the evening hours.


We are hoping that if everyone cooperates with these modifications, we will not have to implement a full blown water ban.
