UPDATED TO STATE: CITY OF CLINTON HAS POSTPONED THE HAZARDOUS WASTE DISPOSAL EVENT UNTIL OCTOBER 31, AND THE CITYWIDE CLEANUP FOR OCTOBER 31 – NOVEMBER 7
The City of Clinton will offer hazardous waste disposal on Saturday, October 10, at the Public Works Facility at 525 Springridge Road. Disposal will be allowed from 8 a.m. until noon. Residents are encouraged to dispose of common household chemical waste by bringing it to the facility for proper disposal. Items such as used motor oil, paint, paint thinners, propane tanks, aerosols, antifreeze and insecticides can all be disposed of.
Public Works staff will be on site to accept different types of hazardous materials.
Other common items of household waste include car batteries, tires and fluorescent bulbs, as well as electronics such as computers, printers, monitors and televisions. Any chemical or article that is designated by the United States Environmental Protection Agency to be “hazardous” will be collected on this day.
The annual fall citywide cleanup will be held from October 10 through October 17 (except Sunday). Roll-off dumpsters will be placed at the old Northside Elementary School location at 1111 Old Vicksburg Road. Residents will be able to dispose of yard waste, bulky items and other household debris free of charge. The dumpster site will be open from 7 a.m. until 6 p.m.
Due to the expense of the program, the Public Works Department will limit the service to residents of Clinton only. Residents utilizing the service will be asked to show proof of residency. Accepted forms of identification include a City of Clinton water/garbage bill or a driver’s license or state-issued ID card with a Clinton address.
Should there be a delay for entry into the parking lot for dropoff, residents are asked to line up by utilizing Longwood Place in the Briars neighborhood and turning west onto Old Vicksburg road.
The fall cleanup days are a service to Clintonians who may have items too large to dispose of on their regularly scheduled garbage collection days.
