Mankato’s Spring Clean-up, which had been postponed due to COVID-19, has been rescheduled to August with additional safety measures in place to help protect participants.

During Spring Clean-up, Mankato residents may dispose of unwanted items at the Public Works Center, 501 S. Victory Dr., at no additional cost. Electronics (such as televisions and computers) will be accepted.

Safety of residents and staff is the primary concern, and there will be changes to how Spring Clean-up is managed this year:

To help with social distancing and traffic, and to limit people within the drop-off area, scheduled drop-off dates and times have been assigned based on residents’ garbage and recycling collection days. Residents will receive a letter and color-coded postcard in the mail indicating their drop-off dates.
