Free Spring Clean-Up in April

The City of College Park Public Works Department (9217 51st Avenue) will be open for City residents all four Saturdays in April from 7:30 a.m. until 12:00 p.m. The clean up days are for City of College Park residents only; you must show proof of residency in the City of College Park to participate.

Residents may drop-off bulky trash, electronics and molded/block Styrofoam® for recycling, and yard waste. Electronics that may be recycled include, but are not limited to: TVs, computers, monitors, keyboards, mice, speakers, VCRs, CD, DVD & MP3 players, cell phones & PDAs, printers, scanners, fax machines, telephones, radios, stereos, electric tools, game systems, handheld games, microwaves, and cords/cables. Number 6 expanded polystyrene foam, commonly known as Styrofoam®, cannot be contaminated with tape, stickers, food, or other impurities. Additionally, the City can only accept molded foam such as blocks used in packaging – no food or beverage containers or packing peanuts. Air conditioners, heat pumps, refrigerators and freezers may incur a disposal fee; tires will incur a disposal fee of $4.00 each.

SMARTLEAF® compost and wood mulch will also be available for sale – residency is NOT required. The City will also be working with Community Forklift and American Rescue Workers again this year to divert items from the landfill that are still in good condition. All donations are tax deductible. Clean out your homes, garages, and sheds, and bring the items you no longer use or need and donate them for reuse.

The following types of items will be collected separately so they may be reused:
• Building, remodeling, and gardening materials – any surplus or salvaged (in GOOD condition) items from your latest home or garden improvement job, including but not limited to: bricks and pavers, plumbing and light fixtures, tiles and flooring material, cabinets, doors, gardening supplies, and tools. These items will be donated to Community Forklift.
• Clothing and household items – cookware, dishes, books, linens, games, toys, clothes, shoes, and intact furniture items (NO upholstered furniture or mattresses). These reusable items will be donated to American Rescue Workers.
