Eden Prairie residents can haul their no longer usable stuff to the city’s yard waste site and leave without it at a Sept. 11 city-sponsored event. Ninety-eight percent of the junk will be recycled, according to Certified Recycling, the vendor that is partnering with the city.
When and where?
The Fall Recycling Drop-Off is Saturday, Sept. 11 from 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. The yard waste site is located at 9811 Flying Cloud Drive. Drop-off traffic must enter the site from northbound Flying Cloud Drive. Bring proof of your Eden Prairie residency in the form of a driver’s license, utility bill or passport.
Plan ahead to pay fees on site
Certified Recycling will accept a large variety of items most of which have small fees. For example, tire fees range from $5 to $40 depending on size; snow blowers and coffee tables are $20; flat-screen TVs, treadmills, and upholstered chairs are $30 and remote controls are a single buck.
There are no charges for lead-acid automotive batteries, answering machines, copiers, lap-top CPUs, servers, towers, and tablets. iPods, iPads, VCRs, and cell phones are also free.
Recovery Bike Shop will accept bicycles free of charge. The service restores and distributes old and damaged bikes. Learn more.
