The City of Gillette's Streets Division will begin its annual spring cleanup program on Monday, April 14th. This is a chance for the public to begin spring cleaning and have the City of Gillette pick up certain types of trash and debris.
Spring cleanup is a service provided to all public residential properties within the Gillette city limits and to private mobile home parks that are served by City of Gillette solid waste garbage collection service.
This service is not provided to commercial businesses and city crews will not pick up building/construction debris.
If you miss the cleanup day for your area, you are responsible for the removal of your trash and debris. City crews will not return to streets that have been completed and will be tracking streets on GPS to confirm which subdivisions they have been through.
Please read the following instructions to make sure we all keep Gillette "Clean and Green"!
All Spring Cleanup items must be placed curbside by Monday, April 14th at 7 a.m. There are no individual areas this year. Several crews will begin picking up Spring Cleanup material on April 14th - please be sure to place your material on the street as close to the curb as possible.
PLACE YOUR MATERIAL IN FOUR SEPARATE PILES (Listed below) ON THE STREET (CURBSIDE) BY 7 a.m. ON MONDAY, APRIL 14th:
Pile A: Metal (dishwashers, stoves, barbecue grills, lawn mowers, metal bed frames, bicycles, steel pipe, etc..)
Pile B: Tree branches and yard waste (tree limbs & branches - 10 foot limit)
Pile C: Large materials: lumber, large wood items, dressers, bookshelves, wood bed frames, wood desks, clean wood fence posts, etc..
Pile D: Bagged and bundled garbage (paper, plastics, clothing, couches, carpet, plastic swimming pools, etc.) No Household garbage.
Please note: The City of Gillette will host a Stop and Drop on Saturday, May 10th that will allow citizens to drop off and recycle consumer electronics and mattresses, as well as provide document shredding. Please plan ahead and recycle these items, rather than throw them away during spring cleanup.
*We realize that some people use spring cleanup as a means of "Urban Recycling." If you choose to be an Urban Recycler, please make sure to do it neatly and keep the piles separated. If you open a bag and leave it open, you could be ticketed for littering.
The City WILL NOT pick up:
Refrigerators and freezers
Computers and other electronic devices
Paint or paint cans
55 gallon drums
Debris from commercial businesses
