Mighty Tidy Clean-Up Day

Golden Valley's annual Mighty Tidy Clean-Up Day was established to provide residents a monitored site to dispose of items that they no longer use and that cannot be donated, such as old mattresses and sofas, broken bicycles, ancient appliances, unwanted tires, and outdated electronics (computers and televisions).

How It Works

2017 Mighty Tidy
Clean-Up Day

Sat, Oct 7
8 am–1 pm
Brookview Park

Cash or check only*
*Checks payable to
City of Golden Valley

Enter Brookview Parkway from the north along Winnetka Ave (it is a one-way for the event). Workers collect the appropriate fee (cash or check only) and direct residents to the appropriate lot. These items are accepted:

  • Paper shredding and donations, batteries, fluorescent light bulbs, electronics, computers, appliances, TVs, scrap metal, sofas, chairs, mattresses, and miscellaneous items (construction debris, lumber, swing sets, bricks, etc), and tires

Paper Shredding

One of the best ways to combat identity theft is through the safe and secure destruction of personal documents. Bring papers loose in a paper bag (boxes will be returned to you). Staples and paper clips are ok. No binders or plastic material (computer disks, CDs, etc) will be accepted. Available for residents only and not businesses or other commercial enterprises.

Last year, the demand was so high that the truck filled up in less than two hours. To accommodate this demand, the City will charge a nominal fee for paper shredding (see "Acceptable Items and Fees" below).

Non-Perishable Food/Personal Care Products Donation

PRISM is accepting donations of non-perishable food and personal care products.

Rules

  • No hazardous waste (used motor oil, asbestos, cleaning solvents, pool chemicals, concrete, etc) are accepted.
  • The Golden Valley Mighty Tidy Clean-Up Day is open only to Golden Valley residents, and proof of residency will be required at the entrance.
