Volunteer for Citywide Dropoff at Fairgrounds
Thursday, September 7, 2017 3:55 PM


You know all that junk getting in the way in your garage, attic, basement and/or yard? You can get rid of it for free. All you have to do is volunteer at Saint Paul's Reduce and Recycle Citywide Dropoff at the State Fairgrounds on Saturday Oct. 7. District 10 is organizing the annual cleanup; if you volunteer:

  • You receive a voucher allowing you to dispose of one load of your own junk for free.
  • We feed you.
  • You help out a lot of people in a short period of time.

Shifts are 3.5 hours -- we have a morning shift and a not-so-early morning shift. To volunteer, fill out this online form. (Volunteers MUST register in advance; because of safety and coordination concerns, we no longer can accept walk-in volunteers the day of the event.)

The dropoff event runs from 8 a.m.-1 p.m. Oct. 7. Residents can dispose of appliances, electronics, furniture, tires, demolition debris, scrap metal, and other household refuse you cannot put in the trash. There's a set fee per item or per load. For full details on what items are acceptable, and what they cost, see the city's All-In web page. (You'll have to scroll down a ways to find that detailed information.)

Seniors: If you are 65 or older and can't make it to the Fairgrounds, arrange a "senior pick-up." You'll have to pay the same fees as everyone else, but we'll try to pick up your discards for free. Contact the Como Community Council office by email or by phone at 651-644-388.
