The Department of Public Works Fall Cleanup Days is upon us. On October 12, and 26 from 7:30 am to noon, the Department will be open for City residents to drop-off bulky trash, electronics for recycling, brush, and yard trim.
FREE Smartleaf® Compost. City residents may pick up free Smartleaf® screened compost during the two clean-up day events. Limit 2 cubic yards per resident, per trip. You must bring proof of City of College Park residency to participate. We will load open bed trucks. If you don’t have a truck and want to get some compost, bring your own containers or bags as well as a shovel and be prepared to dig and get dirty.
The following will be available for purchase and pick-up: Rain barrels ($72), yard waste carts ($25), and backyard compost bins ($20).
You must be a resident of the City of College Park and bring proof of City residency to participate, although anyone can buy compost or wood mulch during this event.
Residents may dispose of one of each of the following items per year for free: air conditioners, heat pumps, dehumidifiers, and refrigerators. Tires will incur a disposal fee of $4.00 each.
Wood mulch and Smartleaf® screened compost will also be available, you don’t need to be a resident to purchase.
Hazardous materials will not be accepted (light bulbs or tubes, batteries, shingles, propane tanks, paint, etc.)
