Pay Citation or Ticket
Clearfield City requires residents to complete an Application for Utility Service and Financial Responsibility Agreement before services begin. The application can be mailed or emailed. In addition, the application is available at our office on the first floor of City Hall at 55 South State Street. Clearfield requires the property owner to maintain financial responsibility for City provided services and proof of ownership is necessary to establish an account.
When signing up for services, please ensure all water is turned off at the residence. This requirement is to ensure that flooding/water damage does not occur when a city technician turns the water on at the meter located near the street.
Once complete you may email the Start-up Agreement form to firstname.lastname@example.org or mail a physical copy.

Clearfield City Recycling Program
Additional Recycling Resources
Can I discontinue Recycling?
Do I need to have a seperate recycling can after the new sorting system is in place at the land fill?
Although they will be recovering a large portion of recyclables from your regular trash can, they will not be able to recover paper clean enough to market for recycling (there is currently no market for mixed paper, but that is likely to change in the future). Also, the other materials you place in your recycling bin will be of better quality than the materials we are able to recover from the general waste stream.
Keeping your recycling bin is a matter of personal preference. In fact, if you otherwise need two garbage cans, the recycling can is typically less expensive than a second waste can. More info
What can we place in the recycling container, and how often will it be collected?
You’ll receive a blue 96-gallon container that will be picked up every other week on the same day as your trash service. You can recycle the following:
- Aluminum and tin cans
- Cardboard boxes
- Coated paper
- Carbonless receipts
- File folders
- Plastic containers labeled #1-#7
- White and colored paper
- Junk Mail
- Brochures and pamphlets
- Computer printouts
- Manuals with glue bindings
Why can't we include glass in our recycling bins?
According to Waste Management, there is not enough glass in the Utah market to make it worthwhile to install a glass separator. Broken glass can also contaminate the other recyclables in the bin.
What are some Benefits of Recycling?
Recycling helps to save energy, reduce pollution and water consumption, preserve natural resources and create jobs.
- Recycling an aluminum can saves 95% of the energy needed to produce a new aluminum can from raw materials. The energy saved from recycling one ton of aluminum is equal to the amount of electricity the average home uses over 10 years. (Source: Keep America Beautiful)
- Recycling one ton of paper saves 17 mature trees, 7,000 gallons of water, 3 cubic yards of landfill space, 2 barrels of oil, and 4,100 kilowatt-hours of electricity – enough energy to power the average American home for five months. (Source: Environmental Protection Agency)
- Recycling one ton of plastic milk jugs saves enough energy to light a home for a year (EPA).
- Incinerating 10,000 tons of waste creates one job; landfilling 10,000 tons of waste creates six jobs; recycling 10,000 tons of waste creates 36 jobs. (EPA, “Resource Conservation Challenge: Campaigning Against Waste,” EPA 530-F-02-033, 2002)

Lead-Based Paint Hazard
Lead-Based Paint Hazards
Lead-Based Paint was banned for the use in houses in 1978, however, in houses built before 1978, there is a possibility that Lead-Based Paint is still present. Dust from Lead-Based Paint is the leading cause of lead poising in children which is a serious and preventable environmental health problem for every community. In children, elevated lead exposure can cause decreased IQ, damage to the nervous system, and a range of other developmental and behavioral problems. In Clearfield City there are residences that were built before 1978 which makes it important for information regarding this type of paint to be made available to our residents. The Utah Department of Environmental Quality provides information for families, contractors, and training regarding Lead-Based Paint. Please click the following link to access this important information. The bottom of the page includes handouts and resources to download.
