Hosting a neighborhood cleanup is a great way to build community and raise awareness about litter.
Keep Greater Milwaukee Beautiful
- Many Milwaukee shelters and organizations accept new and gently-used donations of clothing, shoes, homegoods, furnishings, building materials and other items. Some organizations also offer pick up services. Consider some of these donation options before scheduling your weekend box.
Drop Off Centers
- Collected garbage can be set out with your regular trash (if less than 1 cubic yard), or taken to a Drop Off Center.
Clean and Green
- 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.
Neighborhood Cleanup Dumpsters
- 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. Neighborhood cleanup boxes can be reserved online or by calling 414-286-3345 for availability.
