Neighborhood Dumpsters

Keeping the City Clean and Beautiful

In an effort to help keep Clinton clean and beautiful, City officials have established the Community Dumpster Program.

Each year, hundreds of tons of debris are removed from the city and hauled to the burn plant for disposal/recycling.

4 city owned dumpsters are delivered to neighborhoods from March-November. If you would like to reserve a dumpster for your neighborhood please call the Public Works Office, there is no fee for this service.

Dumpster Reservations
Dumpsters will be delivered on Mondays with a Thursday pick up or delivered on a Thursday with a Monday pick up, except holidays that fall on these days.

Delivery
Public Works will deliver the dumpster as close to the requested address as possible but it will not be placed on private property or in areas that would interfere with traffic.

Use
Dumpsters are intended for use by the neighborhood and not for the exclusive use of the residence calling for the delivery. No one is allowed to move the dumpster except the Public Works Department. A list of items that are not allowed to be dumped will be posted on the side of the dumpster. Dumpsters should not be loaded past the top.

Conditions for Early Pick-Up
If a dumpster becomes full before the scheduled pick up day 1 extra dump may be requested, however the following conditions apply.
  • If the regularly scheduled day for dumpster pickup is Monday, the call for an additional dump must be requested for and scheduled by noon on the previous Friday.
  • If the regularly scheduled day for dumpster pickup is Thursday, the call for an additional dump must be requested for and scheduled by noon on the previous Wednesday.
We will make our best effort to honor an extra dump request, yet it is not always possible due to previous scheduled commitments.

Location Requests
Occasionally we receive calls asking for the location of the community dumpsters. It is our policy not to reveal the location due to the fact that the people who have scheduled the dumpster have already been waiting for it for awhile.

Scheduled Dumpsters
Dumpsters may be scheduled by the same caller for no more than one dumpster per month. Dumpsters will be scheduled for no more than 3 months in advance.
