Project Clean & Green


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

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).

Crews will not collect appliances, TVs, electronics, construction debris, paint, and grass clippings. 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.



Extra items left at your collection point will be picked up on your collection day during your assigned Clean and Green week.  Enter your address below to look up your assigned week.

If your neighborhood wishes to schedule a group cleanup, please visit Keep Greater Milwaukee Beautiful online or call (414) 272-5462 for clean-up bags, gloves, or to borrow a limited number of clean-up tools (rakes, shovels, brooms).
