CLARKSVILLE, Tenn. – Mayor Kim McMillan encourages Clarksville residents to take advantage of a service to help keep Clarksville clean. The Street Department is offering to pick up yard debris, leaves and limbs for Clarksville residents.

“This program has been popular in the past and I appreciate the Street Department for offering this service again. This is a great way to help residents dispose of yard debris in a responsible and cost efficient way. It’s good for the environment, helps reduce potential safety hazards and keeps our neighborhoods and yards looking clean and inviting through the fall,” said Mayor Kim McMillan.

Yard debris, including leaves, must be collected and placed in biodegradable paper bags or cardboard boxes and placed near the street for collection. Tree limbs must be 6’ or less in length and the Street Department will not pick up limbs in cases where a company has pruned trees.

The service will begin November 4 and continue through November 29, 2013. To arrange for pick-up of your yard debris, leaves or limbs, please call the Clarksville Street Department at 931-472-3353 or e-mail debris@cityofclarksville.com. In your message, please provide your name, address, how many biodegradable bags or cardboard boxes you have for collection as well as whether there are limbs for collection.
