The City offers cleanup events every spring and fall where residents can bring garbage/refuse not accepted by their hauler. Cleanup Day is only open to Shoreview and Arden Hills residents and participants must present a resident ID. Fees are based on vehicle type. Spring Cleanup Day will be held on Saturday, May 18th from 7 a.m. - 12 p.m. at the Ramsey County Public Works Facility. 

Household hazardous waste materials will be accepted during the events. However, if you only have household hazardous waste items, it is recommended that you dispose of those on a day that does not conflict with a Cleanup Day event. Ramsey County residents can dispose of these materials year round, cost free, at different facilities in Ramsey County. If you chose to visit the household hazardous waste site during Cleanup Day, you will be subject to Cleanup Day traffic.

Please visit RamseyRecycles.com or call 651-633-EASY (3279) answered 24/7, to learn options for other drop-off dates and locations.
