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. 2019 Neighborhood cleanup boxes can be reserved online or call 414-286-3599 for availability.
