St. Paul city-wide cleanup event is Oct. 8

Got junk you need to get rid of? How about not-so-junky stuff you simply don’t need anymore? Take it all to St. Paul’s Citywide Drop-off Event at the Minnesota State Fairgrounds on Saturday, Oct. 8. District 10 is the lead organizer for the annual event, but any St. Paul resident can participate.

The cleanup event runs from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. It’s an easy way to get rid of things you can’t put in the trash. You can dispose of some things for free (like bikes and cell phones), but typically there’s a charge. There also will be an expanded reuse area, so goods in good shape can go to a nonprofit instead of to the landfill. Plus, you can bring confidential papers and shred for free.

Watch District 10’s website for additional information as the date approaches:

Want to volunteer? Residents who volunteer to staff the cleanup event get to bring in one load of materials for free. If you want to volunteer, contact District 10 by email at or by phone at 651-644-3889.
