Dumpster Day!

Date:  April 22nd, 2017

Time: 9:00 am – 2:00 pm

This event is held in early spring. We hope for a weekend after the winds have died and the weather is turning nice. Materials for the clean up event are supplied by the City of Omaha. The event coordinator picks supplies up at the city office downtown and then returns them after the clean up weekend. The city parks department ensure the trash is picked up that week. We accept bulk items, tires and any unwanted household items. This is also a good time check for any hazardous waste material. Check out www.underthesink.org for additional information. In addition to household clean up, we will also be cleaning up the park. All the trash should be picked up. This year, the dump site is located in the Hillsborough Park parking lot. The event is teamed up with Greentree Neighborhood.

We need 5 neighbors to be at the site at all time.  We will close early if we don’t have enough volunteers.  Please email me and let me know what time you can help or just show up.  Free pizza for those who volunteer.

You and your family can also go to the park and help pick up trash.  Please bring gloves and trash bags.  This is not supervised, but a great way to get the park ready for the summer.

Tires, Bikes, Electronics (tv’s will have a small recycling fees, sorry miscommunication with prior post), small appliances only, dry paint, batteries will be accepted at this event.
