Earth Day Deets

This is where you’ll find a complete list of items we can and absolutely cannot accept at our event. Message us if you have any further questions.

When:

In an effort to make the days run more smoothly our event will only be open from 12pm-5pm on Saturday and Sunday. We cannot accept anything outside of these hours.

What we can take off your hands:

Here is what we WILL and WON’T take: We’ll have a metal recycling bin from Pacific Recycling available, but the bin is strictly for the items listed in the document below. We cannot take your entire car, so please arrange for pick up of that elsewhere. Montana Public Radio has a program where they’ll pick up your vehicles, so reach out to them for more details.

Recycling Details:

We cannot recycle any containers that are closed, the pressure within can be very dangerous. Please read the detailed document above to learn what we can accept.

If you have cardboard or paper you’d like to recycle please visit Pacific Recycling, they have bins outside (*always open*) for the public to recycle.

Garbage Details:

We will have TWO 20 yard dumpsters on site at Burnich. We want to fill them up, but once they are full, we cannot take anything else. So, bring us your garbage!

Acceptable Garbage

Yard Waste:

We encourage you to take your organic yard waste to Garden City Compost. We can give you further directions at Burnich, if you happen to pull through the lot. Review their website to see what they accept. We will have a very limited number of passes available to Garden City Compost if you’ve got yard waste to drop off. If you’d like to donate a trailer to our event to collect waste, please contact us.

Hazardous Waste:

We cannot accept hazardous waste. Please visit the Missoula County Health Department for details on their next Haz Waste Day. They will have one in the fall of 2021. Dates coming soon.

Drive-in Directions:

Map for Entry

You MUST enter the parking lot from Minnesota Avenue, NOT Hwy 200. We cannot create a hazard in the middle of that busy highway, so please enter using the map below.

Why?

This is for you, for our neighbors. We have sponsors to thank for helping us provide this ‘free to you’ service. We want you to take advantage of this opportunity to save on dump fees, to connect with this new neighborhood organization (East Missoula United) and to chat with other neighbors emerging from hibernation after a long winter. The events we hold are to connect us to one another.

Please reach out if you or a neighbor need help. We’d appreciate knowing in advance, so we can try and find volunteers to be where we need them on the 24th & 25th. On that note, if you want to be a volunteer, we need you! We need all of the help we can get. We’ll feed you donuts.

Volunteers Needed!

Our Earth Day Clean-Up Event is right around the corner and we need helpers. It’s the best time of year to get out in the sun, roam the streets, clean up a bit and chat with neighbors.

If you’re interested in being a neighborhood walker, or being on-site at Burnich to help direct traffic and sort through car loads we need you!!

Please reach out if this event interests you or you know of someone that might want to help. AND, please reach out if you (or a neighbor) are in need of clean-up help and you live in East Missoula.

Happy Spring!

Earth Day Clean-Up

We’ve got a plan in the works. If you’d like to be a part of the committee we’d love to have you join our meetings. We’re cleaning up our neighborhoods on the weekend of April 24-25, in lieu of Earth Day.

Earth Day Clean Up East Missoula United

We’ll have a dumpster available (in the Burnich parking lot), as well as some recycling options. If you are able to help with the logistics of these things please holler. The main thing we need is for you to spread the word! We would love to have the neighborhood bustling with people pitching in. Can you mark your calendar? Would you share these dates with your neighbor(s)? We would be so grateful.

Our friends at Hellgate Canyon Storage have graciously offered to sponsor this event. If you have interest in being a sponsor too, please let us know. We are looking for all of the support we can get.

Please contact us with any questions and/or if you’d like to be part of the planning committee. We would love your input and assistance. We will have a few Zoom meetings leading up to the event – you are welcome to join them. Message us for a link.
