Residential garbage collection will resume on Monday, February 22, 2021.
Storm Debris Cleanup: Please be patient as cleanup could take several weeks. Waste Management will be focused on collection of trash and recycling. Clinton Public Works will be focusing on collection of storm debris.
The City will operate its limb truck with a dedicated crew and a skid steer/truck with a crew of 4 starting February 19, 2021 (Friday) in a limited capacity – based on road conditions. Starting Monday these crews will be focused solely on limb clean up. Other Public Works personnel will focus on water lines, other weather related damages, then potholes.
The City is asking residents to adhere to these guidelines in the clean-up and disposal of tree limbs caused by storms.
Larger tree limbs and branches brought down as a result of the storm may be cut and stacked behind the curb of the individual's residence. Under no circumstances should any type of storm debris be piled or pushed into the street. Such debris can end up being washed into drainage inlets in a subsequent storm clogging them and creating a flooding hazard.
Please follow the following guidleines to ensure that storm debris may be collected efficiently:
Limbs and other trimmings should not exceed five feet in length and no greater than eight inches in diameter.
Limbs and/or bundled branches may not weigh more than sixty pounds or exceed two cubic yards and should be placed next to the trash receptacle.
Public Works Department debris removal truck will be working diligently over the next few weeks to remove debris from residences and right of ways in the city. Please be patient with the city crew as they work to clean our city.
The owner/occupant may request to have a licensed contractor remove damaged limbs, but it is the responsibility of the contractor to haul the limbs to the landfill. Residents who contract with a tree service or hire an individual for the removal of trees on private property will be responsible for the disposal of such debris.
The City appreciates the cooperation of the public in ensuring the timely and efficient clean-up of storm debris. For more information regarding the removal and clean-up of storm debris, call 601-924-2239.
