The City of Gillette's Streets Division will begin its annual spring cleanup program on Monday, April 13th. 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.
NEW THIS YEAR - ALL RESIDENTS MUST HAVE THEIR ITEMS OUT TO THE CURB BY 7:00 A.M. ON MONDAY, APRIL 13TH.
Spring cleanup is a service provided free of charge to all 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.
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"!
