REMINDER #2: Clinton ‘Spring Clean-Up Day’ this Monday April 3rd

The City of Clinton Public Works Department has announced that our annual Spring Clean-Up Day will again be held this year on the first Monday in April.

Public Works crews will be collecting items that normally are not collected during household garbage pick-up and taking them to the Chestnut Ridge Landfill (residential only, no commercial items collected). Residents should place refuse and rubbish items beside the street, ensuring that nothing protrudes into the street or obstructs sidewalks, utility poles, water meters, fire hydrants, or mailboxes. Items for collection MUST be at the curb by 7:30 a.m. Monday April 3, 2017.

Public Works crews will be following a scheduled route to make collections one time on each residential street. Once a crew has cleared an individual street, they will move to another area and will not be able to return for a second or late collection. The maximum quantity of items per household is the equivalent of one pick-up truck load.

Items for collection may include:

  • Water heaters, stoves, mattresses, box springs, furniture, and appliances.

Recyclable items (electronics, computers, TVs, newspapers, magazines, plastics, cardboard, glass, and cans) should be separated so we may deliver them to our Recycling Center, rather than the sanitary landfill.

Crews will not be able to collect the following:

  • Tires
  • Building materials or debris from remodeling
  • Hazardous materials (paint, solvents, batteries, petroleum products)
  • Air conditioners, refrigerators, freezers

(Some of these items may be dropped off at the Blockhouse Valley facility. Call Anderson County Solid Waste at 865-457-6244 for details.)

Brush and Leaf Collections are covered under separate schedules and policies.

Residents with questions or comments may e-mail [email protected] or telephone 457-6495.
