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.
Brush Pick-Up is included with residential trash service. Call our Billing Office at 928-639-2450 or submit the Brush Pick-Up Request Form before Monday at noon to ensure your brush is picked up with the Tuesday trash service.
Grass clippings and leaves must be bagged.
Tree clippings and trimmings must be cut to three (3) foot lengths and bundled.
Century plants, thorned plants, cacti, and similar plants which are difficult to handle, or may present a danger to collectors, shall be contained in boxes or containers after having been cut to lengths of no more than three (3) feet.
Pick-up is limited to four (4) bags and two (2) bundles per week.
Please keep in mind the weight of these items as a person is physically lifting them into the truck.
