Plymouth Drop-Off Day set for April 29
The annual Drop-Off Day in Plymouth is set for 7:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturday, April 29 at the Plymouth Maintenance Facility, 14900 23rd Ave. N.
The event provides an opportunity for residents to get rid of unwanted items, including appliances, electronics, tires, bicycles, bulky items and more.
The event is for Plymouth residents only; identification for proof of residency is required.
How it Works
Drop-Off Day features two entrances – one for disposal items and one for recycling and reusable items. Cost for the disposal line is $20 per vehicle, per trip, while the recycle and reuse line is free.
Vehicles should enter on 23rd Avenue from Fernbrook Lane only. The gates will close to all vehicles not in line by 12:30 p.m. No left turns or U-turns. For safety reasons, residents are asked to remain in their vehicles while at the site. View the traffic flow map (PDF).
Disposal Line ($20): Items accepted in the disposal line include tires, scrap metal, mattresses and box springs, vehicle batteries, electronics, appliances, bulky items, remodeling material and construction debris.
Recycle & Reuse Line (Free): Items accepted in the recycle and reuse line include bicycles and bicycle parts, textiles and home goods*, paper to shred, light bulbs and household batteries.
*Textiles and Home Goods
New this year, textiles and home goods will be accepted at Drop-Off Day by Simple Recycling, a company that helps reduce landfill waste. All materials donated are graded and sorted based on quality and condition. Top quality materials are resold to local thrift outlets, while “unusable” items are processed for raw materials (insulation, carpet padding, etc.). Items with mold contamination will not be accepted.
Accepted items include clothing, coats and jackets, shoes and boots, jewelry, purses, hats, toys, pictures, mirrors, blankets, pillows and sleeping bags, drapes and curtains, backpacks, small furniture, tools, silverware, dishes and glasses, and pots and pans.
The Plymouth Yard Waste and Recycling Drop-Off sites will be closed until 1 p.m. that day.
