It’s time to clean up and get your items ready for “Community Clean-Up Day” which is coming Saturday, Sept. 6 at ROCORI High School parking lot from 8-11 a.m. The Cold Spring Area Chamber of Commerce is co-sponsoring this event with Stearns County Environmental Services, West Central Sanitation and ROCORI School District 752.

Items such as hazardous chemicals (paints, stains, insecticides, fertilizers, etc.) are free to drop off. Items not accepted are business waste, explosives and oil.

Some items are free and some items have a fee. Watch for ads in the Cold Spring Record for a more detailed list about what is allowed, what’s not, and the fees for loads, etc.
