We want to make it as easy as possible to properly get rid of unused household chemicals in Milwaukee County, so the Milwaukee Metropolitan Sewerage District (MMSD) has added a NEW permanent drop-off site that’s already open.
It’s basically a drive-through. You don’t get out of your car, which with COVID safety measures in place is a good thing.
The NEW location is at 6060 S. 13th St. in Milwaukee, just north of College Ave. and less than a mile from the freeway with easy on, easy off access.
This site complements two other permanent sites, one in Menomonee Falls and another in Milwaukee at 38th and Lincoln. The combination allows at least one facility to be open every day except Sunday. All three permanent sites are open on Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. to 2:00 p.m.
There’s a long list of things that you can and cannot bring to the collection locations.
MMSD's mission is to protect public health and Lake Michigan. Our water reclamation facilities are not designed to remove many of these compounds and chemicals. If improperly disposed of they can end up getting through to the plants and into the lake, our source for drinking water.
23 million pounds. That’s how many nasty household chemicals we’ve collected, disposed of properly, and kept out of the environment, just from Milwaukee County residents since 1997, the year MMSD’s Household Hazardous Waste Program started.
