City of Clarksburg starts fall-clean up


CLARKSBURG, W.Va. – The City of Clarksburg is starting its fall clean-up process on Monday for city residents.

The clean-up lets residents in the city get rid of large bulk items, such as stoves, washers, dryers, TVs, microwaves and more.

Things not accepted include anything with freon without proof of freon removal, regular household garbage and broken glass.

Clarksburg Public Works said it’s something they do twice a year to help clean up, especially before kids go trick or treating for Halloween.

“It’s a good service. It helps try to keep the neighborhoods clean, prevents people from, you know, throwing stuff over a hillside somewhere or something to get rid of it because there’s a proper way. There’s an avenue for you to properly dispose of this type of materials without having to take it and throw it over a hillside somewhere,” said John Workman, Supervisor of Clarksburg Public Works.

A set of trash cans sit alongside W. Pike St. in Clarksburg.

Examples of things that are accepted in the clean-up:

  • Stoves
  • Washers
  • Dryers
  • TVs
  • Computers
  • Microwaves
