*NO LATEX PAINT!

DRY IT OUT AND THROW IT IN THE GARBAGE

To do so, pour a thin layer in a box lined with a plastic bag. (Newspaper or kitty litter will help absorb more paint in the box.) When the paint in the box is dry, pour in another layer until the can is empty. Discard the dried paint in the garbage. Make sure to take the lid off before throwing the empty can in the garbage.

HERE'S WHY:

You don’t have to pay when you visit one of our collection facilities, but MMSD does have to pay to dispose of it. The costs for the program are passed along to Milwaukee County Residents through the District’s user charges. Less latex equals lower program costs!

No Latex Paint

 

 

PLACES TO GET RID OF ELECTRONICS & OTHER ITEMS

MMSD's Household Hazardous Waste Program does not accept all items. We're providing the following list, as a public service, of places where you can properly dispose certain items.  You should check with your municipality to see if it offers disposal services for items not accepted at our hazardous waste collection facilities.

ELECTRONICS

Wisconsin's electronics recycling law bans certain electronic items from landfills, such as TVs, computers, printers and fax machines.  It also creates a state wide recycling program called E-Cycle Wisconsin.  There are many convenient electronics drop-off locations under the E-Cycle Wisconsin program.  Visit the Wisconsin DNR’s E-Cycle webpage to search for a drop-off site nearest you.

The E-Cycle program is the state's first comprehensive system in Wisconsin for recycling electronics from households and K-12 public schools.  Under the new program, manufacturers will bear the primary financial responsibility for the recycling of banned electronics.

ELECTRONICS & OTHER ITEMS
Companies listed below may charge a fee for disposing items at their facilities. 
Call ahead for costs and hours of operation.
