PROJECT CLEAN & GREEN is a City-wide program that includes targeted street and alley sweeping and provides additional FREE bulky pickups for residents. 

On your Project Clean and Green collection day, place acceptable items at at the garbage collection point (curb or alley) along with your regularly collected garbage. This is your opportunity to get rid of excess household debris at no cost.

After your Project Clean & Green week, there will be a $50-$150 charge for all bulky pickup requests larger than 1 cubic yard (about the size of an easy chair).



Accepted Materials

Unwanted furniture Up to 2 cubic yards of tree trimmings
Mattresses Brown paper yard waste bags or piles of yard and garden debris, twigs, and leaves
Household Items Brown paper yard waste bags of grass clippings
Up to 5 tires      

This is the only time the City collects tires and grass clippings. This is the only time outside of the fall leaf collection that the City collects yard and garden debris and leaves.

Crews will not collect appliances, TVs, electronics, construction debris, and paint. These items can be taken to a City Drop Off Centers for proper disposal. Household hazardous waste is collected by MMSD from all Milwaukee County residents. There are several permanent collection sites throughout the County.
