Community Cleanup

2014 Citywide Community Cleanup Events
Community clean up events are open to all City of Saint Paul residents. Volunteers are always needed.

The City of Saint Paul partners with local district councils to organize annual community cleanup events for residents to properly dispose of large refuse items, recycle materials not collected in the curbside program and share usable goods with others.

Fees apply. See details below.

The City of Saint Paul is committed to recycling and reusing as much of the materials collected at these events as possible. For example, tires, appliances, scrap metal and electronics are all recycled; bikes collected at the event are restored and returned to the road for re-use. Furthermore, the city supports a monitored re-use area for residents to share usable household items with others. Participants using the drop-off sites are encouraged to check out the re-use area before heading home. Check out this video to learn more.

To help address the ongoing problem of trash and litter in our community, the City of Saint Paul is asking community members to help clean, beautify and improve their neighborhoods. Clean neighborhoods benefit everyone!
