Neighborhood clean-up @ Brooklyn School Park
Sep 25 @ 9:00 am – 2:00 pm

Trash or treasure? It’s time to clean house!

Getting to the nearest donation drop-off site or better yet, the dump, is something that few of us find time to do. Bulky items like old vacuum cleaners, furniture, and scrap wood take up valuable space in our garages and in our homes.

Not only will you feel great about clearing out unwanted stuff, you will feel good about the contribution you make to your Brooklyn neighborhood!

Location

SE 16th Ave & SE Center St

Price

Each vehicle will be quoted a price before unloading.

  • Mixed waste: $20 for small loads, $30 and up for large loads
  • Tires: $5 without rims, $8 with rims

  • Household batteries
  • Plastic and metal bottle caps
  • Styrofoam (cups, coolers, packaging, etc)

Help and questions

Do you need help getting your stuff there or want to volunteer to help? Contact the BAC at board@brooklyn-neighborhood.org.

Since SE Uplift no longer helps with the cost of the dumpsters, the BAC would like to thank realtor, Melaney Dittler, for a donation covering the cost this year. Thank you!
