The curbside clean up continues in Crystal and New Hope this Saturday, Oct. 3rd. See www.hrg-recycling.com for more details. We are 2/3 done in Crystal and New Hope and completed the 2009 area in Brooklyn Park. So what have we seen? We saw participation from 60%-80% in different neighborhoods, we also saw many items that grew legs and jumped into the back of cars and trucks. Reuse is great, but if you notice a problem with scavenging, call 911.
One thing we didn't take at the curb was TV's and computers, but we will take them for free on Saturday, October 10th from 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. at 8300 Noble Ave N, which is the Brooklyn Park Operations & Maintenance Facility. Other free drop-off items include oil, oil filters, antifreeze, batteries, bicycles, scrap metal, and household donations for the Vietnam Vets of America. Car tires cost $1/tire for recycling, pickup truck tires cost $2/tire. Appliances cost $10/unit and air conditioners are $15/unit.
