We will not allow early drop-offs. The Grange parking lot will not be open until 10:00am.
We will have traffic control at the intersection of The Grange entrance to remove cones and begin allowing cars in at 10:00 am. Cars may line up in the “left turning lane” into The Grange prior to the event. That will be the only entrance line into The Grange.
Spring is here and The Meadows Neighborhood Company has created an event to make your spring cleaning much easier! The event is free, but it is only open to Meadows Residents (MNC & MCA). We will have multiple stations available to handle all of your spring-cleaning needs. Please note the event is on a first come, first served basis. Due to demand of this event and the growing community, we have a one-carload per-household limit. If we reach capacity at a drop off station, we may not be able to accept your items.
Below is a list of our drop off stations with what we can and cannot accept.
Items we CAN accept
Paper Shredding – A mobile paper shredding truck will be on site where you can watch your documents get shredded. There is a limit of 3 banker’s sized cardboard boxes per person.
Electronic Recycling – A truck will be available that can recycle old electronics such as computers, laptops, printers, and cell phones. This station cannot accept T.V.’s or large appliances.
Trash – There will be several large trash bins available to accommodate your general trash. We can accept items such as old furniture and mattresses along with general trash. Information on what can’t be thrown away in these bins is listed below. You must unload your own items and put into the dumpsters so they are completely inside the dumpster. Do not leave any items on the ground or hanging over the edge of the container.
