After a ten (10) year absence, the City of Clarksburg has reinstated the Spring Cleanup and it has once again been deemed successful. The annual Spring and Fall Cleanups allow Clarksburg residents to properly dispose of items that are considered to be too large or bulky for regular trash pickups The 2019 Spring Cleanup ensued a total of 235 tons of waste deposited in the Landfill after various Public Works Department trucks completed 147 trips to the Landfill with a total cost of $8,907 in Landfill tipping fees. The 2019 Spring Cleanup took place from April 1-April 19, and all residential areas of Clarksburg had the opportunity to take part in the annual Cleanup. Due to changes in Landfill policies, the 2019 Spring Cleanup allowed for electronics such as televisions, microwaves, and computers to be picked up.
The 2019 Spring Cleanup resulted in 18 less tons than the 2018 Spring Cleanup, which resulted in 253 tons of waste, with Public Works Department crews completing 220 trips to the Landfill with $9,620 in tipping fees. The 2018 Fall Cleanup collected a total of 249 tons of debris from residents and resulted in $9,620 in tipping feels.
In comparison; the 2018 Spring Cleanup, which took place in April 2018, resulted in 253 tons of waste collected at a total cost of $9,620 in tipping fees; while the 2017 Fall Cleanup collected 360 tons of debris at a total of $13,709 in tipping fees.
By reinstating the Spring Cleanup, 142 tons more debris have been eliminated from our community, that would not have been removed had the City administration and Council not chosen to reinstate the dual Cleanup.
The annual Fall and Spring Cleanup eliminate waste from ending up in residential neighborhoods, along river banks, or other isolated areas. The Cleanup is a time-consuming task for Clarksburg’s Public Works Department, and requires significant manpower and trucks and equipment to complete the project.
