This event is for Rosemount residents only and is intended as a means to dispose of household quantities of items. A driver’s license or other proof of residency will be required. Those with an unusually large amount of items to dispose of are asked to make special arrangements with a hauler. Any children attending the clean-up event must be closely supervised, as there are many vehicles and assorted equipment moving throughout the site. Event participants are responsible for unloading whatever materials they bring to the event.
City staff reserves the right to refuse disposal of any item. Items that are not accepted at this event include hazardous waste materials (paint, oil, solvents), compostable material, and yard waste. There are other sites in Dakota County that will accept these items. Residents are encouraged to contact the City’s Recycling Coordinator at firstname.lastname@example.org with questions.
On the same day, the City will partner with the Michelle Hoagland Group, Keller Williams Preferred Realty, to hold a shredding event at Spring Clean-up Day. Both events will take place in the east parking lot of the college. Participants are welcome to drop off unwanted personal papers or confidential files for shredding. The shredding will be done by Shred Right at no cost to participants. Participants can follow the signs to the shredding truck.
