(Milwaukee, WI) – Bring us your household YUCK and help keep it out of our water. Drop off unused household chemicals at State Fair Park (640 S 84th St, West Allis, WI 53214) on October 22, 11:00 a.m. to 1 p.m., and October 23, 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. It’s free to visit MMSD Home Hazmat collections where you can get rid of old gas, paint, compact fluorescent light bulbs, motor oil, rechargeable batteries, and much more. For Milwaukee County residents ONLY. Sorry, businesses are not allowed.
View the list of items you can and cannot drop off.
There are three Home HazMat collection sites open all year for Milwaukee County residents, including a new location on 13th Street in Milwaukee, just north of College Avenue. It’s less than a mile from the freeway.
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?
Every downspout on your home can send 12 gallons of water a minute to the sewer system, which increases the risk of basement backups and sewer overflows. Disconnect and help keep excess water out of sanitary sewers.
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.
