Fall Clean Up Starts September 29th & Ends The Week Of October 20th

DISCLAIMER: The City of Devils Lake is not responsible for items which are inadvertently picked up during the Spring and Fall Clean Up. It is the home owner's responsibility to ensure that there is a clear definition between what they do and DO NOT want picked up. Any items that are set out anywhere near the items which they intend to have picked up could be mistakenly disposed of. The City WILL NOT be responsible for the replacement of any of those items.

City residents with a residential City account are allowed to put out up to 5 cubic yards of material (about 2 pickup loads) in the spring and the fall. Any amount exceeding 5 cubic yards will be picked up and billed to the homeowner according to the City's Resolution of Fees and Rates. To see what week we will be in your neighborhood review the Special Pickup Map below. All items must be put in the same place your regular garbage is picked up by 7:00 a.m. on Monday of the week your special pickup is scheduled (please make sure your garbage can is not right by the items to be picked up or your can may get picked up too). Place your items in an open area so the crew and trucks are able to easily access and load the items. Due to the volume of items placed out and the time involved in picking up these items, the City is NOT ABLE to come back for items that were not placed out in time for pickup.

News and Events

Mosquito Spraying

Evening Mosquito Spraying – The City has started to spray for mosquitoes in the evenings.  Residents may want to go inside just before their area is sprayed and stay inside for 20-30 minutes until the aerosol cloud dissipates.  Residents should not run, walk, or bike directly through the aerosol cloud behind the insecticide sprayer.  Also, anyone who is sensitive to chemicals may want to close their windows during the ground spraying.  To ensure spray effectiveness during the spraying operations, the winds should be 15 mph or less and no inclement weather present.  Winds higher than 15 mph or inclement weather may result in the spraying being suspended until conditions improve.
