Volker Neighborhood Association

VNA Dumpster Day

and Neighborhood Clean-up

Saturday, October 7th 8am - 12pm

Roanoke Park Community Center


PLEASE NOTE: we are combining our dumpster day and neighborhood clean-up. We will be meeting at the the Community Center (not Guardian Angels as in years past). Come drop a load off in the dumpster then grab a coffee and pastry and help cleanup the hood!

Dumpster Day Details
BE SURE TO REVIEW our Dumpster Use Policy before heading down as this is a VNA member funded event and we reserve use of the dumpsters accordingly. You can read these rules and list of allowed/disallowed items on our website under the resources tab.
We will have 2 dumpsters for trash and 1 dumpster for yard waste. We also plan to invite metal scrappers to recycle metal items. Please check our website for up-to-date information.
NO Electronics / E-waste recycling: sadly we have been unable to arrange for electronic recyclers to come. Please check with MRC Recyclers for their drop-off locations and associated fees:
