Waste Pro Trash Bin


Important Dates and Instructions: 

April 29, 2024: Please place your old Waste Management carts on the curb for collection. Do not use the old carts after this date.

April 30, 2024: Begin using your new Waste Pro carts.

May 6, 2024: This is the first collection day with your new carts. Please make sure they are ready for use.


Reminder About Cart Placement

To ensure a smooth and efficient collection process, please follow these guidelines for cart placement:

  • Place carts curbside the night before your collection day. Collection days start on Monday each week.
  • Position the carts with wheels facing the street and lids closed to prevent spillage and facilitate easy pickup.
  • Ensure carts do not block driveways or sidewalks to maintain clear access for pedestrians and vehicles.
  • Bag all waste before placing it in your cart to ensure proper and clean collection.

We thank you for your cooperation during this transition to Waste Pro. Let's work together to keep the City of Clarkston clean!



Refuse (regular household trash) is picked up on Mondays, except for Holidays.

No refuse should be placed at the street for pickup until 5:00 PM on the Sunday prior to the Monday pickup. (City Ordinance Article 5, Sec. 19-73)

NOTE: Any refuse placed at the street for pickup by Waste Management before the weekend is subject to collection by Public Works. The resident at the location will receive an invoice covering the cost when this special pickup is required.
