Community Clean Up Opportunities
Community Clean Up Events
Citywide Spring Clean Up Event
The City of Saint Paul partners with local District Councils to organize annual Community Clean Up Events. These events are an opportunity for residents to properly dispose of large refuse items, recycle materials not collected in the curbside program and share usable goods with others. Clean Up Events are scheduled May through October each year and is open to all Saint Paul residents. We encourage you to visit an event in your neighborhood.
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, car batteries, appliances, scrap metal and electronics will all be recycled. We support a monitored re-use area for residents to share usable household items with others. Drop off participants are urged to check out the re-use area before heading home. Bikes collected at the event will be restored and returned to the road for re-use.
