Every year we partner with the City of St. Paul to offer the opportunity for residents to properly dispose of large refuse items and recyclable materials not collected in the curbside program. The event allows people to clear out garages, attics, basements and closets, and helps reduce illegal dumping of items.
Where: Harding High School parking lotVolunteer Shifts: 7:30 am-10:30 am and 10:15 am-1:30 pmYou may volunteer for one or both. *All volunteers receive breakfast, lunch, refreshments and a voucher to drop off a free load of items!
Senior Pick-UpGot a pick-up, van or trailer? We need your help! Volunteers are also needed to help pick up items from older adults (seniors) and veterans in our community. Senior Pick-up volunteers receive a small gas card as a token of thanks for their help. Senior pick-up begins at 7:30 am and lasts until all items are picked up and delivered to the drop-off site.
Senior pick-up volunteers spend their time going to various pre-scheduled addresses to retrieve items and bring them to Harding High School to drop off. Senior pick-up volunteers work in teams and may be expected to help pick up anything from dehumidifiers, old printers and scrap wood to appliances or old fire pits. They are not required to pick-up items that are extremely heavy or in difficult to access locations. Pick-up volunteers may turn down an item if they are unable to lift or retrieve it, or, if the homeowner seems capable of being able to move items themselves.
