The City of Dublin invites residents to get an early start on the spring cleaning with the city wide cleanup this Saturday starting at 8 a.m.

Citizens will need to present a proof of residence (such as a recent water bill) before unloading unwanted items. Drop-off will be available until the dumpsters are full.
There are certain items the city can’t accept including: any radioactive material, asbestos, tires, Freon, paint, dirt or rocks, oil and gas liquid or filters, gas containers, microwaves, florescent light bulbs, TV’s with intact screens or computer monitors.
