Citywide Drop-Off Events

The city partners with local district councils to organize annual community drop-off events for residents to properly dispose of large refuse items, recyclable materials not collected in the curbside program and share usable goods with others. 

Volunteers are always needed! Volunteers receive snacks, complimentary lunch, and a voucher to dispose of one load for free. Call the organizing district council to participate!
