Neighborhood Cleanups

Hosting a neighborhood cleanup is a great way to build community and raise awareness about litter.

Keep Greater Milwaukee Beautiful supplies bags and loans tools to groups hosting cleanups. Register to host a cleanup and reserve your supplies online.

Collected garbage can be set out with your regular trash (if less than 1 cubic yard), or taken to a Drop Off Center. On a neighborhood's Clean & Green Week, any amount of additional garbage can be set out for free collection. Consider coordinating your cleanup to be right before this special Clean & Green week.

A limited number of dumpsters are available from Sanitation for use by organized neighborhood cleanups. These are NOT for individuals. Dumpsters are dropped off by 10 AM and are collected by 4 PM on Saturdays between late April and the end of July. Reservations open March 1st and are available first come-first served. 2017 neighborhood cleanup dumpsters have all been reserved.
