The annual City-Wide Spring Clean-Up began at 7 a.m. this morning (April 18) and will continue until 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 just east of Flowserve.
Spring Clean-Up Week is strictly for Sulphur Springs residents, not for commercial interests. City residents are allowed to transport household trash, brush and larger items that won’t fit into their designated trash containers 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 who lives within Sulphur Springs limits, those bringing items to discard will be asked to show proof of city residency 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 refrigerant 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.
