The city of Clinton’s Public Works Department has announced that the 2019 Leaf Collection will begin the week of October 21st.
Clinton is zoned into four service areas, with each area receiving three leaf collections. The collection dates are approximately one month apart. In order for collections to be made, leaves must be at the curbside before the scheduled Monday collection date. Leaves should normally be collected within four days of the date shown.

have had problems with leaves being placed in the street, on
sidewalks, and in drainage ditches. Your leaves should be piled near

If you desire to have leaves removed on dates other than what is shown on the schedule, you should bag them and place them at the curbside with your household garbage for Waste Connections to collect. Waste Connections will collect a total of the equivalent of four 32 gallon containers from each household, whether leaves, household trash, or a combination.
