Annual City Community Clean Up – April 29th

The City of Watertown will sponsor its 30th Annual Spring Community Cleanup on Saturday, April 29th from 8:00 am to 1:00 pm at the Douglas Kugler Eco-Site located at 676 Industrial Blvd, Watertown. City of Watertown residents will be able to dispose of appliances, electronics, carpet, mattresses, sofas, chairs, automotive batteries, tires (must be removed from rims), scrap metal, and miscellaneous household junk. Household hazardous waste, including fluorescent bulbs, paint and motor oil will also be accepted. Building materials, construction waste and large items such as hot tubs, boats, etc. will not be accepted. Business waste will not be accepted. Residents are encouraged to call Randy’s Environmental Services at (763) 972-3335 to make arrangements for large item drop off or special pick-up outside of this event.

2017 Fee Schedule
$20.00 Pickup/Trailer
$30.00 Oversized pickup or trailer
$10.00 Single Appliance or Electronic
** Due to increasing cost of recycling appliances, TV’s, and tires, there will be a limit of two large appliances/electronics (tvs, computers, washer, dryer, refrigerator, etc.) per household and a limit of 4 tires. Additional appliances/electronics will be charged at $10 per item. Additional tires will be charged $5 per tire.

Carver County Residents will be able to drop off paint for recycling and other Household Hazardous Wastes including: automotive fluids, pesticides, fluorescent lamps, and other household chemicals. The Eco-Site will be open to all Carver County residents on this day for recycling purposes. However, the above Community Cleanup rates will apply to CITY OF WATERTOWN residents only. Residents will be required to show either a Minnesota driver’s license or identification card.

Due to maneuverability and to avoid back-ups, no vehicles larger than a 1-ton pickup, a standard cargo van or a normal snowmobile/utility trailer will be allowed to enter the cleanup site. To make unloading more efficient, residents are asked to presort items while loading their vehicles, i.e. keeping all appliances together, scrap metal together, miscellaneous trash together, hazardous waste together, etc. so items can be easily unloaded as they pass through each drop-off location.

City staff reserves the right to determine load size and to turn items away. If you have questions on whether certain items will be accepted, please call City Hall prior to cleanup. For other recycling and household goods donation resources please visit some of our community partners at www.Recyclecarver.org,www.athc.org; or www. rakthrift.com.

We are always in need of volunteers to assist in unloading. If you’d like to volunteer or have any questions about Community Cleanup 2017, please contact Watertown City Hall at (952) 955-2681.
