PROJECT CLEAN & GREEN is a City-wide program designed to foster neighborhood pride and ownership through coordinated clean ups, street and alley sweeping, graffiti removal and neighborhood beautification activities sponsored by community organizations. Collection Crews will target one zone each week and collect extra items left at the collection point on the scheduled collection day.
Residents within the targeted zone can place unwanted furniture, mattresses, household items, up to 2 cubic yards of tree trimmings, up to 5 tires and extra recyclables at the collection point on their scheduled collection day. Crews will not collect appliances, TVs, electronics, construction debris, paint, grass, yard waste or more than 2 cubic yard of tree trimmings. These items can be taken to a City self help site for proper disposal. Household hazardous waste can be taken to 3879 W Lincoln Avenue on Thursdays, Fridays or Saturdays from 7AM – 3PM.
If your neighborhood desires to schedule a group cleanup, you can contact Keep Greater Milwaukee Beautiful at kgmb.org or 272-5462 for cleanup bags, gloves or to borrow a limited number of clean up tools (rakes, shovels, brooms).
This is your opportunity to get rid of excess household debris at no cost. After your 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).
Project Clean & Green 2013 runs from April 15th through June 4th. Click here for more information including dates and map.
