(Milwaukee, WI) –Help protect our drinking water when you’re fall cleaning and bring unused household chemicals to the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District's Home HazMat Collection Program. There’s a one-day collection at Wauwatosa City Hall on September 18, 2021, from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. where you can also get rid of electronics (TV’s $35, computer monitors $10).
All Milwaukee County residents can use the Home HazMat program. It’s free and easy to visit a collection site. You don’t even have to get out of your car.
Old painting supplies? Bring em. Cooking oil? We’ll take it. Pool chemicals, furniture polish, weed killer? Yes, yes, and yes! For a full list of items we accept and those, we do not please visit the MMSD Home HazMat Collection page.
If you can’t make it to the Wauwatosa event, there are three Home HazMat collection sites open all year for Milwaukee County residents. New in 2021, is the location on 13th Street in Milwaukee, just north of College Avenue.

Receive Water Drop Alert text messages when heavy rain threatens the area. When a Water Drop Alert has been issued a reminder is sent to use less water until the rain passes.
What do you do when an alert is issued?
Any items flushed other than toilet paper can create costly clogs in your home pipes, our community sewer pipes, and our water reclamation facilities. Learn what items you should not flush down your toilet.
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.
