Lawn mowers, snow blowers, and other power equipment must be drained of oil and gasoline. Loose items should be boxed or bagged to make unloading easier and quicker. Keep in mind that not all material can be collected. The City reserves the right to refuse any unacceptable material such as compost and yard waste, motor oil (and power equipment containing gas and oil), or household hazardous waste like paints and solvents. There are other sites within Dakota County that will accept these items.
This event is for Rosemount residents only. Please note, a driver’s license or other proof of residency will be required. Participants are reminded that this event is for household quantities of materials only. Any children attending the cleanup event must be closely supervised, as many vehicles and assorted equipment will move throughout the site. Staff will be on hand to assist residents.
SKB Environmental, J. R.’s Advanced Recyclers, and Dick’s Sanitation are the City’s partners in this event. The City would like to extend thanks to all these businesses for their assistance and support of the cleanup event.
