Rosemount clean-up day will be May 18
The city of Rosemount will hold its annual citywide clean-up day from 8 a.m. to noon Saturday, May 18 at Dakota County Technical College at 1300 145th Street East (Co. Road 42). This year the event will take place in the east parking lot instead of the west parking lot as it had been in the past. Participants can enter the site off of Audrey Avenue just south of the new college baseball field.
New this year will be the participation of the Salvation Army at the cleanup event. The Salvation Army will have staff on site to accept donations of usable items including clothing, household goods, kitchen items, working electronic devices and other miscellaneous items. The Salvation Army will provide tax receipts for any items donated at the event.
This cleanup event is intended to allow participants the opportunity to dispose of items not suitable for donation or not accepted by the Salvation Army. Rosemount will work with J.R.'s Advanced Recyclers for collection and disposal of electronic equipment and appliances. Anyone dropping off these items will pay J.R.'s directly. Therefore, participants who wish to dispose of electronics, fluorescent light bulbs, and appliances, along with other items for which there is a charge should be prepared to pay J.R.'s Advanced Recyclers and the city of Rosemount separately.
For a complete list of electronic equipment and the disposal fee for each item visit the city's website at www.ci.rosemount.mn.us. Call the city's solid waste coordinator at 651-322-6005 with any questions. Only cash and checks are accepted.
Loose items should be boxed or bagged to make unloading easier and quicker. Not all material can be collected. The city reserves the right to refuse any unacceptable material such as compost and yard waste, motor oil or household hazardous waste like paints and solvents. There are other sites within Dakota County that will accept these items.
This event is for Rosemount residents only. A driver's license or other proof of residency will be required. This event is for household quantities of materials only. Any children attending the clean-up event must be closely supervised, as there are many vehicles and assorted equipment moving throughout the site. Staff will be on hand to assist residents.
