The city partners with local district councils to organize annual citywide drop-off events for residents to properly dispose of large refuse items and recyclable materials not collected via the residential recycling program. District 10 helps coordinate the event held annually at the Minnesota State Fair Grounds. This year’s event is scaled back and the list of accepted items has changed, please take a look at the updated list and avoid being turned away the day of!
We are looking for volunteers to help us with the September 16 Citywide Drop-Off event at the State Fairgrounds. The event is from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and there are two volunteer shifts (7:30 a.m.-11 a.m. & 10:30 a.m.-2 p.m.). Volunteers also get a voucher for a free drop-off. If you have any questions about volunteering, please email firstname.lastname@example.org.
*If you are a senior in the Como area and would like your items picked up from your home, email email@example.com no later than Monday, Sept. 11. Everything must be outside in front of your house by 8am Saturday, Sept 16. Drop-Off site rates still apply.
