Keep our waterways clean and safely dispose of household hazardous waste—such as cleaners, lawn chemicals, nail polish, gas, aerosols and paints—by dropping them off at State Fair (Gate 1).

Nail polish, pool chemicals, mercury thermostats, and pepper spray, just a few on a long list of household chemicals that are toxic to our environment if not disposed of properly. Luckily, these products can be safely disposed of this weekend at State Fair Park and three other locations.
The Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD), with the help of Veolia North America, have collected over 22 million pounds of nasty household chemicals since 1997 and they want more. Do not pour these materials down the drain, in your backyard, or in the storm drains in the street.
This program’s motto? If it doesn’t bring joy, just drop it off.
When you flush your meds, they end up in Lake Michigan, the source of our drinking water. Responsibly dispose of your unused meds at one of our 80+ free, secure locations in Milwaukee County.
Rain gardens are gardens that are watered by collected or pooled stormwater runoff, slowly infiltrating it into the ground along root pathways.
Get FREE water by the barrel from your roof and use it when it’s dry outside to use in your landscape. Rain barrels help keep excess water out of the sewer system and help reduce water pollution.
