Duluth is extending the hours of its Public Works Department on Saturday as part of the city’s annual community cleanup day.

The event, now in its third year, is part of a wider cleanup effort brought by the Duluth Neighborhood Outreach Work program, which was created to improve the quality of life in Duluth neighborhoods.

“This event continues to grow every year and we want to ensure we as the city continue to do what we can to help our community,” said Duluth Planning Director Bill Aiken.

The event will be held from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m., and residents are allowed to dump “just about anything,” the city said, including tires (four maximum), paint, debris cardboard, lawnmowers, appliances, grills, furniture, clothing, electronics, vehicle parts and vehicle fluids, garden and household chemicals, tree limbs, grass clippings, leaves and more.

This event is free, though only residents who live in Duluth city limits will be allowed to dump items.

Those who want to participate are asked to bring a utility bill and a driver’s license and/or trash card. The trash card will not be stamped for the event.
