Free event for Springfield residents

The City of Springfield invites residents to clean up their homes and neighborhoods by disposing of unwanted items at our annual Spring Cleanup event. Join us this Saturday, May 18 from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at EcoSort in Glenwood, 3425 E 17th Ave. This free recycling event provides an opportunity for Springfield residents to dispose of large or hard-to-recycle items in one convenient place.

Residents can dispose of items including TVs, appliances, scrap metal, scrap lumber, electronics, computers, yard debris, clothing, furniture and more. For the safety of staff and volunteers, loads in enclosed vehicles, such as moving trucks will not be accepted. Paint, household garbage, chemicals, fluorescent lights, car parts, dirt, or oversized items such as hot tubs and boats are also not accepted. For a full list of items accepted visit

Spring Cleanup is returning to Glenwood with support from Sanipac and their EcoSort facility at 3425 E 17th Ave. Last year was the first time the event was held at this location, and it proved to streamline the drop off process due to the size of the property and on-site facilities. Residents may experience a short wait time depending on the number of participants.

Please note that this free event is exclusively for City of Springfield residents within city limits. Proof of residency will be required. No businesses please.
