Neighborhood Clean-Ups

Spring Clean-Up:  Saturday, May 11th, 2013 from 9:00am - 2:00pm on Shepard Road (new location in 2013)

Fall Clean-Up: Saturday, September 28th, 2013 from 9:00am - 2:00pm

Directions to Shepard Road Cleanup Site: Take Montreal Avenue east, turn right on Elway Street, turn right on Shepard Road to Alton Street.

The Fall & Spring Clean-Ups are one-day events which allow residents to discard just about anything. The Community Council brings together haulers and vendors in one central location and make efforts to reuse or recycle your old stuff for less cost than you would pay a garbage hauler to take it away. To volunteer at the event, or to learn more about it, please call the office at 651-695-4000.

Senior Pick-up Service: We are able to offer a limited pick-up service for seniors and residents with disabilities who are unable to bring items to the clean-up. Pick-up services will be offered on a first-come, first-served basis, so don’t delay to sign up by calling 651-695-4000 if you qualify for this service!

  1. Reusable household goods. Almost anything that is in good shape may be left at the reuse area.
  2. Children's items, such as books, toys and clothes.
  3. Paper for shredding (additional fee).

  6. Electronics (additional fee) including computers and computer-related equipment, televisions, phones, fax and copier machines.
