Clean-up Day


The annual Fall Clean-up Day will be held on Saturday, October 7, 2023 at Recycle Technologies (formerly Green Lights Recycling) located at 1525 99th Lane NE in Blaine (see below for map location). 

Arden Hills residents (ID required) are able to drop off refuse and electronics for a fee. A coupon will be included here as well as published in the City's August/September newsletter. The coupon is only valid if residents present a digital or printed copy at checkout. Contact Recycle Technologies at 763-559-5130 for current item pricing.  

NOTE:  Ramsey County has partnered with Repowered to provide free electronics recycling for residents; this is a separate service from Clean-up Day.  We recommend utilizing Repowered for recycling any unwanted electronics and using the Clean-up Day coupon to recycle other non-electronic items. Repowered is located at 860 Vandalia Street in St. Paul.
