Recycling & Clean Up Announcements

April 18 Spring Clean Up Postponed


The City of Maplewood has been monitoring the current public health emergency taking place.  In order to protect our residents and staff, we are postponing the April 18 Spring Clean Up which was scheduled to be held at Aldrich Arena. We are working with our contracted trash hauler to schedule an alternative clean up event later this year, likely in the fall.  Until then, here is a list of other recycling and disposal options (make sure and check their websites for changes in their service levels):
