The annual Sartell Lions Clean-Up will take place again from 8 a.m.-noon Saturday, April 24 in the parking lot of Riverview Intermediate School (formerly Sartell Middle School).
Volunteer Boy Scouts will be lending a hand at the event.
All COVID-19 state guidelines will be followed at the clean-up site, including social distancing and the mandatory wearing of face masks.
For more than 30 years, the Sartell Lions have hosted the clean-up day as a community project and to raise funds, so the Lions can do even more beneficial projects in the Sartell area.
The clean-up is the Lions’ largest annual fundraiser, said Lions President Stu Giffin. This clean-up event, he noted, will help fund, along with other area Lions clubs, an all-inclusive playground at Sartell Community Lions Park on Pinecone Road across from the city hall.
For a fee, people may bring the following items to the clean-up so they can be properly disposed of:
For a fee of $35 each: couches/stuffed chairs.
For a fee of $25 each: office/business furniture, refrigerated appliances, mattresses/box springs, commercial appliances.
For a fee of $20 each: non-refrigerated appliances/grills.
For a fee of $10 each: tires.
For a fee of $3 each: fluorescent bulbs, car batteries.
For $1 per pound: all TVs, computers and other electronic items.
Pickups and trailers loaded with items will also be accepted for $120 per load for a 6-foot x 6-foot load and $160 for a 6-foot x 8-foot load.
Not accepted are bare or broken tube television or monitors, paints, solvents, oils, chemicals and gas-operated refrigerators.
Arrangements to pick up items can be made if an appointment is made before Friday, April 23. The pick-up cost is $35 for a trailer-load of items and $15 for a single item.
