City Spring Clean-Up Week Planned April 18-23, 2022 For Sulphur Springs Residents

The annual City-Wide Spring Clean-Up has been set for Monday-Saturday, April 18-23, 2022. Sulphur Springs residents may bring large items to discard from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on clean-up days to the city collection site, located about half of a mile east of Flowserve.

City Manager Marc Maxwell stresses, Spring Clean-Up Week is strictly for city residents, not for commercial interests. This simply allows city residents to transport household trash, brush and larger items that won’t fit into their designated trash cans to the dump site annually. Those things which can fit into trash cans should be placed in them and discarded accordingly.

To verify the person arriving with garbage is a resident, living within the city of Sulphur Springs, those bringing large items to discard will be asked to show proof of city residents by presenting a driver’s license or city utility bill (water bill) with their physical address on it.

No containers or appliances with hazardous or harsh materials will be accepted at the city collection site If discarding a refrigerator for instance, the city resident must show documentation the substance has been removed. No paint, batteries, tires or other household hazardous wastes will be accepted.

Residents do have to bring their own items to the clean-up site; the city will not furnish a means to do so. There are typically people on-hand to help city residents who do take advantage of the City-Wide Spring Clean-Up by bringing items to dump. They can help with some items but residents for the most part will be responsible for offloading their own items.

County Cleanup

Hopkins County residents will also have the opportunity the following weekend to dispose of larger household items during Hopkins County Cleanup Days. The four county precinct barns will be open from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Friday, April 29 and from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, April 30. No tires, shingles, chemicals, household hazardous waste, pesticides or paint will be accepted. Those hauling large items are asked not to bring it in gooseneck trailers as they are hard to unload. Click here for additional information about Hopkins County Clean Up Days.
