JACKSON, MS (WLBT) - The annual citywide cleanup for Clinton residents begins April 6 and will continue through April 13, except Sunday. This program is to provide a disposal service to residents who have items too large for regular disposal, as well as yard waste and other household debris free of charge.
Hours of operation will be from 7 am to 6 pm, with city workers present. An extra hour have been added this year to help residents utilize the service. “Public Works hopes that the additional hours of operation will enable additional residents to participate in the service,” stated Dexter Shelby, Director of Public Works.
During the cleanup period, the City of Clinton will have dumpsters available for residents at the old Northside Elementary School location at 1111 Old Vicksburg Road. Those taking advantage of this opportunity must line up on Longwood Place in the Briars, and turn west on Old Vicksburg Road for disposal.
This service is limited to Clinton residents due to the expense of the program. Residents utilizing the service are asked to show proof of residency by way of a City of Clinton water/garbage bill, a driver’s license, or state-issued ID card with a Clinton address.
The spring cleanup period does not include e-waste, such as old computers, printers or keyboards, which can often be partially recycled. A separate time for disposal of e-waste and hazardous materials, such as paint and pesticides, will be offered in the fall.
