The City of Canyon, in an effort to beautify our city and assist the residents, offers the use of the city truck, when available, on a first come, first served basis, for the removal of trash, tree trimmings, shingles, etc. If you have any large items, please place them on the truck last. The city limits private usage of this truck to 3 times per calendar year. You MAY NOT place Batteries, Tires, Oil, Paint, Dirt, Brick, Concrete, Asphalt, Antifreeze or Refrigerated Appliances in the truck! The tailgate MUST be able to be completely closed and all debris must be secured and remain in the truck during transit. Any items listed previously that are placed in the truck will be returned to the residence. The City of Canyon restricts the use of city vehicles to individuals who are performing work for themselves on property they own/rent within the city limits. Work that is performed for pay is not eligible for this service. Any materials generated by contractors shall be disposed of by the contractor’s or owner’s expense. It is not the intention of the City for this truck to be used to clean up after construction projects that generate debris in amounts greater than 7000 lbs. If the load limit is exceeded or prohibited materials are placed in the truck, a charge of $200.00 will be paid by the person requesting the vehicle. The truck will be parked in a driveway, front yard, or on a street and will be picked up the next workday morning. ONLY city employees will be allowed to drive any city vehicle due to insurance restrictions. The hydraulic tailgate will be locked in the lowered position and will not be available for use by residents using the truck. Any material on the tailgate and not in the bed of the truck will be returned to the residence.
