The City of Clinton’s annual Spring Citywide Cleanup will take place April 10-17 (except Sunday).
Special to The Clinton Courier
During the cleanup period, the City of Clinton will have dumpsters available for residents at the old Northside Elementary School location at 1111 Old Vicksburg Road.
Hours of operation for the City of Clinton’s Spring Cleanup are 7 a.m. – 5 p.m. each day of operation.
“Spring cleanup continues to grow in utilization and keeps our city cleaner,” said Phillip Lilley, director of Public Works.
“From boats to pianos to mattresses, we have seen many types of items be disposed of during the Spring Cleanup. Limbs and yard debris are also encouraged to be disposed of using the cleanup days. Residents are encouraged to utilize the free service,” Lilley added.
Residents utilizing the service are asked to line up on Longwood Place in the Briars and turn west on Old Vicksburg Road for disposal. Due to the expense of the program, the Public Works Department will limit the service to residents of Clinton only. Those utilizing the service will be asked to show proof of residency. Accepted forms of identification include a City of Clinton water/garbage bill, a driver’s license or state-issued ID card with a Clinton address.
The spring cleanup days are a service to Clinton residents who may have items too large to dispose of on their regularly scheduled garbage collection days. Residents can dispose of yard waste, bulky items and other household debris free of charge.
The spring cleanup period does not include e-waste, such as old computers, printers or keyboards, which can often be partially recycled. Refrigerators, freezers and A/C units cannot be accepted due to freon. A separate time for disposal of e-waste and hazardous materials, such as paint and pesticides, will be offered in the fall.
