The Public Works Department is announcing the 2020 Leaf Collection
Schedule. Our city 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 7:00 a.m. on the scheduled Monday collection date. Leaf collection
for your neighborhood will begin on the Monday shown, but it may take our
crews several days to reach your individual street.

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.

In past years we have had problems with leaves being placed in the street, on sidewalks, and in drainage ditches. Your leaves should be piled near the curb or ditch line, on your property, and no closer. When leaves are placed in the street and in ditches, rain carries them into our storm water drains and catch basins, adding to drainage and flooding problems. Leaves placed in the street obstruct traffic, and leaves placed on sidewalks create a hazard for pedestrians.

It is a violation of Clinton City Ordinances 16-106 and 16-107 to place leaves in the street or in drainage curb/gutters and ditches. We have asked our Codes Enforcement department to help enforce these ordinances. If your leaves are left in violation of the ordinances, they will not be collected until a correction is made through Codes Enforcement. Your cooperation with this ongoing problem is needed and will be greatly appreciated.

If you have questions or concerns, please call me at 457-6495 or e-mail to dwilkerson@clintontn.net. Also, please do not combine brush with leaves, as these are separate operations and our equipment will not be able to collect them both from the same pile.

Thank you for your cooperation!
