MANKATO, Minn. (KEYC) - The event typically happens twice a year and is aimed at allowing people to come and get rid of whatever they don’t need. Residents dropped off everything from electronics to furniture and any extra unwanted clutter. Now the city will begin the next step. Everything dropped off will be taken in trucks and sent to different areas where the city will dispose of it. The city says many residents participated; lines of cars showed up over the past couple days to haul away their unwanted things.
”I think that they just really appreciate this service that the North Mankato residents get,” Katie Heintz said. “We all have a lot of stuff that we need to get rid of and this is just another bonus of living in North Mankato that they can bring their trash and things that they are trying to get rid of here.”
More than 2000 cars came through to the drop off this weekend. The city is hoping to have another drop off event this fall.
