City of Clinton Spring Cleanup Begins Saturday May 9
The City of Clinton’s annual Spring Citywide Cleanup will take place May 9 - 16 (except Sunday). 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 have been extended to 6 p.m. each day of operation. Public Works officials believe this extra hour will provide residents an extra opportunity to utilize the service. The site will continue to be closed on Sunday.
“Spring cleanup continues to grow in utilization by Clinton residents. Public Works hopes that the additional hours of operation will enable additional residents to participate in the service,” stated Dexter Shelby, director of Public Works.
City workers will be present to receive trash each day between 7 a.m. and 6 p.m. The site will be closed on Sundays.
“From boats to pianos, we have seen many types of items be disposed of during the Spring Cleanup. Residents are encouraged to utilize the free service,” Shelby 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. Residents 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.
