A citywide clean-up day will be held from 8 a.m. to noon on Saturday, October 5, at the Rosemount Public Works Facility at 14455 Brazil Avenue, just north of Rosemount City Hall. Residents are welcome to participate in the event by dropping off unwanted items that are not normally collected by their residential solid waste haulers.

There are other sites within Dakota County that will accept these items.
