WHEN: Saturday, May 26, 9:00 AM to 1:00 PM

WHERE: Henry V Events at 6360 NE MLK Blvd.

Don’t you hate the dreaded Spring cleaning (cupboards, closets, basement, garage, car)? Well, we can make it easier on you because after all that hard work, you can dump all your unwanted stuff in one place! No need to make the inconvenient dump run (think price of gas & fees), or hope to flag down a metal recycler pickup, or schedule trips to thrift stores, or keep stacking up all your unused computers/monitors/printers/cell phones, etc. No! Just load everything into your vehicle and come dump on us! Plus, you’ll get a wonderful bag of helpful info and local coupons!

This is Woodlawn’s ONLY fundraiser, and suggested DONATIONS are based on vehicle + size of load ($10 and up); extra for tires ($3) and e-waste ($5-$10).

We’ll take almost everything: household junk, metals, glass, furniture, e-waste, Styrofoam, bikes, and ALL reusable/fixable items (we donate to nonprofits).

PLEASE DO NOT BRING (we will reject):
–Yard debris / Concrete
–Hazardous materials (paint, oil)
–Large appliances (washer/dryer/fridge)
–UN-bagged garbage

CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS!

We need LOTS of hands (between 8:00AM and 2:00PM) to post signage before, take tickets & money, direct traffic, help unload vehicles (BIG job), sort items (BIG job), keep order, and clean up after. In turn, you’ll get great food and drinks, a good workout, and some neighborly camaraderie.

Volunteer 2 hours or more, and you can dump ONE carload for FREE!

Email Jan NOW to sign up:

Many thanks to our sponsors and donors:
METRO, Planning & Sustainability, NECN, Cloudburst Recycling, Moonstar, Henry V, Safeway, Sparky’s Pizza, Woodlawn Coffee & Pastry
