Project Clean and Green

Project Clean and Green has concluded for 2019. 
Please check back in late March for information about the 2020 schedule.

PROJECT CLEAN & GREEN is a City-wide program that includes targeted street and alley sweeping and provides additional FREE bulky pickups for residents with City of Milwaukee solid waste collection service. 

Scroll to the bottom of this page to find your Project Clean and Green collection day and then 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.

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

List of Acceptable Materials: Broken Furniture, consider donating, mattresses, unusable household items, up to 5 tires, up to 2 cubic yards of tree trimmings, mixed yard waste in brown paper bags, and grass clippings in brown paper yard waste bags

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

Unacceptable materials for clean and green include appliances, electronics, hazardous waste, and construction waste

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