Start cleaning your houses, basements, and garages of unwanted items and hard to recycle (non-curbside) recyclables so you can bring them to the annual Richmond Neighborhood Clean-up!
Did you know that the Richmond Cleanup is a win-win event for everyone involved? Not only do YOU get an affordable, centrally located location to get rid of unwanted items such as obsolete electronics or bulky block Styrofoam, but the Richmond Neighborhood also gets the opportunity to fundraise and support the neighborhood events you enjoy throughout the year! Every car (or bike trailer!) that comes to the parking lot that day helps raise funds to support events such as Movies in the Park!
Don’t have any stuff to get rid of? Well you should still plan to drop by because back again this year are the ever-popular Plant Sale/Swap and U-Price it Sale! The Plant Sale/Swap gets bigger each year and is a great opportunity to get affordable plants for your yard. The U-price is sale is an enormous neighborhood garage sale that overflows with usable household items that need a new home! Both are not to be missed!
VOLUNTEERS NEEDED. This event is only possible thanks to the fabulous support of our neighbors who give their time on Clean-up day to help divert people and stuff to their appropriate locations. We are always looking for enthusiastic folks who want to help out so please get in touch so we can add you to our list! (We’ll provide tasty food and beverages for your time!)
