Sanitation (Trash / Recycling)

The Town of Clarkdale contracts with Patriot Disposal to provide curbside residential trash and recycling service. Residents may establish service by coming to the Billing Office at 890 Main Street (corner of Main and Ninth) in Clarkdale or by calling 928-639-2450.

Trash / Recycling pick-up is every Tuesday. Carts should be put out before 6 am on Tuesday morning.

Patriot Disposal uses a single-can service where trash and recycling is collected in the same container and delivered to the Freedom Recycle Center. At the Center, recyclables are sorted from the waste stream, which has increased the amount of recycling that occurs in our community, and removes the requirement for individual customers to sort their recyclables separately.
