(Milwaukee, WI) – Clear your home of household chemicals the safe way and drop them off at the first, mobile, Home HazMat collection of 2021 at State Fair Park. It’s free to visit MMSD Home Hazmat collections where you can get rid of paint, compact fluorescent light bulbs, motor oil, rechargeable batteries, and much more. For Milwaukee County residents ONLY. Sorry, NO businesses allowed.
Hours for the State Fair collection are 11:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on April 30, 2021, and 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m. on May 1, 2021.
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 large storms threaten the area. When a Water Drop Alert has been issued a reminder is sent to use less water until the storm passes.
What do you do when an alert is issued?
Try to use less water until the storm passes.
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.
