Clinton’s annual ‘spring clean-up’ set for April 5
Clinton Public Works Department will hold the annual “spring clean-up” Monday, April 5.

Public Works crews will collect items that normally are not collected during household garbage pick-up and take them to the Chestnut Ridge Landfill.

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.

Public works crews will follow a scheduled route to make collections one time on each street.

Items for collection must be placed at the curb by 7:30 a.m. Monday, April 5.

Once a crew has cleared an individual street, it 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 or box springs, furniture, and appliances.

Recyclable items (newspapers, magazines, plastics, cardboard, glass, and cans) should be separated so we may deliver them to a recycling center, rather than the sanitary landfill.

Crews will not collect the following:

• Tires

• Building materials or debris from remodeling

• Hazardous materials (paint, solvents, batteries, petroleum products)

• Air conditioners, refrigerators, freezers

(Some hazardous wastes may be disposed of on certain collection dates. Call Anderson County Solid Waste at 463-6845 for details.)

Brush and leaf collections are covered under a separate schedule and policy.

Residents with questions or comments may e-mail lmurphy@clintontn.net or call 457-6495.
