Garbage is defined as anything from the household which is bagged and placed in a City approved 90-gallon rollout container. The resident or landlord purchases these 90-gallon containers. Each residence may have up to two containers on a collection schedule of once per week.
View map for collection day. Loose garbage, bagged or otherwise, not placed in a container will not be collected by the crews.
The collection policy maintains that all containers must be curbside by 7:00 AM on the day of collection and must be removed from curbside by 7:00 PM of the collection day. This is for the safety of the general public and the protection of your property. Help us keep Clinton clean and beautiful.
There are provisions for age (80+ years of age) and handicap exemptions in the curbside collection policy. Special considerations may be provided for disabled, handicapped or elderly citizens when there is no one living in their household to assist them in rolling their collection containers to the curb. For individuals needing this assistance, you may call the Sanitation Division and request our back door collection service. This service is provided once per week and the qualification is determined on a case-by-case basis by the PW Manager or PW Director.
Commercial containers are provided by the affected businesses. They may be in sizes of two, four, six, or eight cubic yards. Please see our table of commercial rates. High compaction units are not acceptable in the policy of our program. Container service intervals are at the user's determination with city's assistance and may vary from five times per week to once per month. Our commercial bulk customers are offered an eight cubic yard corrugated cardboard recycling container free of charge as a part of our recycling efforts. Currently, the corrugated cardboard containers are serviced each Friday.
Yard Debris and Items that are not considered household garbage is collected on a different schedule. Click here for more information.
You are invited to contact our Sanitation Division Supervisor if you have any questions.
