Annual Cleanup Weeks

Spring - April 10-20, 2023

Fall - September 18-22, 2023

The Annual Cleanup Weeks are an additional service to help customers as they begin spring/fall cleaning in their garages, yards, and around the home. Sanitation customers are invited to place items on the curb for removal on the day of their normally scheduled trash pick-up during that week. Items will be picked up these weeks at NO ADDITIONAL charge. You MUST BE a City of Charlestown Sanitation customer.

  • Non-bulky items for pick-up must be properly placed in dumpster bags and positioned at the curb clear of tree limbs, guide wires, mailboxes fences. etc.
  • Limbs must be cut into lengths no greater than 7 feet and placed in a separate pile from the junk, trash, and debris.
  • Please do not over-stuff your garbage cans.
  • The regular pick-up of your trash will be a separate pick-up from your spring cleanup items. Separate vehicles for pick-ups will be utilized.
