2023 Great American Cleanup

Saturday, April 22, 2023

Dispose responsibly with the help of the 2023 Great American Cleanup!

This convenient event allows Allen solid waste utility customers one-stop disposal of accepted items for recycling and donations.

To participate, you must bring:

  • Your current City of Allen utility bill, placed in your windshield for easy viewing
  • Your drivers license (must contain the same address as the one on your utility bill)

When you arrive at the event, please stay in your vehicle. Staff will unload your items for you. Pack similar items together to reduce the amount of time staff spend sorting.

  • Shoe donations: All types of shoes/footwear

  • Cardboard boxes: Clean, empty, flattened cardboard boxes only
  • Paper for shredding: Limit of five (5) file-sized boxes or 12-16 gallon plastic trash bags. All binders and clips must be removed
  • Medication disposal: Prescription and non-prescription drugs, over-the-counter medications, sharps

Event directions

  1. Make your way to Bethany Drive. Enter the event from the south by turning on Century Parkway from Bethany Drive. There is no event entry from McDermott Drive!
  2. Choose your drop-off options. If you are bringing donations, proceed straight on Century Parkway to Zone 1, located in the front parking lot of Allen City Hall. If you are only bringing items for recycling or disposal, turn right on Butler Drive to enter Zone 2.
  3. Use your fast-pass to circle back. If you need to visit both zones, stop by Zone 1 first. You will then receive fast-pass access to Zone 2.
