Loose items should be boxed or bagged to make unloading easier and quicker. Keep in mind that not all material can be collected.

There are other sites within Dakota County that will accept these items.
This event is for Rosemount residents only. Please note, a driver’s license or other proof of residency will be required. Participants are reminded that this event is for household quantities of materials only. Any children attending the clean-up event must be closely supervised, as there are many vehicles and assorted equipment moving throughout the site. Staff will be on hand to assist residents.
SKB Environmental, Advanced Recyclers, Gopher Resource Corporation, and Dick’s Sanitation sponsor this event. The City would like to extend thanks to all these business for their assistance and support of the clean-up event.
