Clean Sweep 2014

Corcoran neighborhood's CleanSweep is back!

The CleanSweep event helps residents dispose of non-hazardous junk that cannot be reused, sold, or given away. Resident may leave materials at their alley on the evening of Friday, September 19, marked “for CleanSweep.” Volunteers will then collect and haul items to the Southside Transfer Station on the morning of Saturday, September 20.

If you plan to leave items for CleanSweep, please come out and volunteer for an hour or two. If you’re doing a major remodeling project, please haul your own materials by reserving a free Transfer Station voucher.

YES— CleanSweep volunteers will collect:
• Scrap pieces of drywall, plaster, shingles, wood. Please remove all nails.
• Scrap pieces of concrete, asphalt, brick, metal.
• Tires.
• Doors Needed! Corcoran GROWS seeks wood doors, cabinet doors, and plywood. Leave these for Green Sweep.

NO— CleanSweep volunteers will NOT collect:
• Appliances or furniture. The City garbage service takes large items.
• Hazardous items (adhesives, fuels, motor oil, paint, batteries, light bulbs). Bring these to a free Hennepin County drop-off site.
• Electronics (television, radio, computer, printer). Use a Hennepin County drop-off.
• Yard waste. The City collects brush, leaves, and grass clippings seasonally.

VOLUNTEER NEEDED: Have a great time helping neighbors, scavenging for “treasures,” and meeting new people. We start at 7:45 a.m. with a brief breakfast meeting at CNO (3451 Cedar Ave S), and end with a hearty lunch back at CNO. Please wear closed-toed shoes, long sleeves, and pants instead of shorts. Bring a water container if you can. We’ll provide gloves and plenty of water. Please contact Ross at CNO if you’re able to help.

• Savers at 2124 East Lake accepts usable household goods and clothing.
• Twin Cities FreeMarket is a free way to donate and find unwanted items.
• Craigslist is an effective way to sell or give away unwanted items.
• Vouchers. Doing a major remodeling project? Minneapolis property owners can reserve a free voucher to unload items at the Southside Transfer Station.
