PROJECT CLEAN & GREEN is a City-wide program designed to get everyone involved in cleaning up their properties and neighborhoods. Residents can place unwanted furniture, mattresses, household items, yard and garden waste, twigs and leaves, up to 2 cubic yards of tree trimmings, and up to 5 tires at the garbage collection point (curb or alley) on their scheduled garbage collection day.
This is your opportunity to get rid of excess household debris at no cost. See the 2019 Clean and Green map for dates in your area. 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 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 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).
