NEW Rules For Getting Rid Of Household Chemicals

05/29/20 04:00:pm

Do you have home improvement chemicals piling up from the “Stay At Home” period to combat COVID-19? Get rid of them safely and drop them off at MMSD’s Home HazMat collection centers that return to regular hours June 1, 2020. There are three facilities open all year in Franklin, Menomonee Falls and Milwaukee.


NEW RULES FOR DROPPING OFF YUCK!

  • You must stay in your vehicle at all times.
  • Put all items in your trunk or as close to the hatchback as possible. For social distancing purposes, we will NOT accept or unload any items in back seats that are directly behind the driver’s seat. 
  • We will NOT return cardboard boxes used to transport items to the collection.
  • We WILL return gas cans used for transporting old gas or gas/oil mixtures. However, the cans will be sprayed with a disinfectant before we hand them back to you.
