Welcome To Cañon City, Colorado

Welcome to Cañon City... your "gateway to adventure." Our community has a rich cultural heritage and interesting geologic history. We embrace our past and plan for an exciting future. Ours is a truly special community, with abundant recreational opportunities, vast open space from the plains to the Rocky Mountains, parks and trails, community events all year long, and of course the Arkansas River and the Royal Gorge. If you live here you know what I mean.

Fall Clean Sweep Saturday Synopsis

The City of Cañon City partnered with Twin Enviro for another Clean Sweep Program this past Saturday. The Fall Clean Sweep Program succeeded in placing four dumpsters at two separate locations on October 6, 2018. The program began at 8:00 a.m. and ended around 3:30 p.m. Three of the 30 cubic yard dumpsters were completely filled and the fourth dumpster was approximately 90% full. Items disposed of mainly included furniture, tree limbs, and yard debris. The city has collaborated with Twin Enviro in the past on a cleanup/voucher program. This is the second time this type of program has been launched by Code Enforcement.

The City would like to thank Bonnie Kelly, the driver for Twin Enviro, who was very cooperative and encouraging during this event; City staff Joelene Inman and Patrick Mulready who helped supervise/coordinate at each dumpster location and provided social media photos/updates throughout the event; Canon City Police Department Volunteers Doug Vivod, Rochelle Reiter, and Vicky Szeliga; and Cañon City citizens for participating in this cleanup effort!
