Clean Sweep Program

The 'Clean Sweep' program is part of Sedalia's neighborhood clean-up initiative. The Sanitation Division has divided the city into 12 sections to beautify the city in an organized, piecemeal fashion. Read all about it and discover how you can best let the city help you.

Beginning the week of April 1, 2024, and continuing through the week of June 24, 2024, each area of the City had a Clean Sweep event. No Clean Sweep events are planned during the weeks of Memorial Day, Good Friday, and Independence Day.

City crews pick up bulky items on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday of each scheduled week. To assist city crews, residents should place items away from trees and overhead lines to help make collection easier.

Each residence is allowed to place up to 4-cubic yards of bulky waste and 4-cubic yards of yard waste/tree trimmings at the curb for collection during the Clean Sweep Event. To assist in understanding how much material can be placed at the curb without incurring additional charges, 4-cubic yards is the equivalent of 2 standard pick-up loads. If you are going to exceed the allotted volume of waste and would like help determining the cost, please contact the Sanitation Division at (660) 827-7820 from 7:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Alternatively, you may contact Public Works at (660) 851-7636 from 8:00 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.

The individual 'for a fee' pick-up-on-demand service is not available during the Clean Sweep Event period, April 1 through June 24, 2024.

Cost of Excess Volume of Waste Collected

During the Clean Sweep event, residents who exceed the waste limits described above will have a door hanger placed on their door. The hanger will state what additional charges will be added to the next month's utility bill. The cost per additional cubic yard can be found on the city's fee schedule.

Place all materials at the curb or between the sidewalk and the street in the green space away from overhead lines and trees. All materials should be placed by 6:00 a.m. on the Monday of the area's Clean Sweep Event Week. Sanitation crews will then spend the week collecting and disposing of the materials for that area. Please place the materials in separate piles in the following order: yard waste; construction and demo waste; unwanted junk; appliances.

Please see the definitions below to guide your placement of certain materials:

  • Yard Waste includes vegetation, plants, tree debris such as branches and leaves, bushes, brush, and tree stumps.
  • Construction and Demolition Waste includes carpet, carpet pads, lumber, drywall, siding, treated patio lumber, pallets, old windows, and screen doors.
  • Other Unwanted Junk includes old furniture, clothing, old magazines, newspapers, plastic toys, old patio furniture, bar-b-que grills, mattresses, etc.
  • Appliances ARE BANNED from landfills in Missouri and need to be kept separate. Please keep any appliances such as refrigerators, washers and dryers, microwaves, ranges, window air conditioners, or dishwashers away from normal refuse.
