Mayor Tom Barrett to Participate in Project Clean & Green with Department of Public Works Sanitation Crew

Mayor to help pick up unwanted bulky items and promote using Self-Help Centers

By - Apr 17th, 2014 01:33 pm

As part of the City’s annual Project Clean & Green (PCG), Mayor Tom Barrett will work with a Department of Public Works Sanitation crew to help pick up unwanted furniture, household items, mattresses and more on Monday, April 21st, 2014.

Project Clean & Green background: Residents within an assigned PCG zone (seven zones total) can place their bulky trash items at their regular collection site – either the curb or alley line – on their regular collection day. DPW crews will pick up these items at no charge to the resident. Normally, residents would be charged $50 to $150 for all bulky item pick-up requests larger than one (1) cubic yard – about the size of an easy chair – and will be charged those amounts after their assigned program week passes.

Mayor Barrett will promote using the City’s two Self-Help Centers as a way for city residents to dispose of unwanted trash, bulky items, recyclables, and especially their old electronics (“e-cycling”) free of charge.

The mayor will also talk about the city’s partnership with Wisconsin Community Services (WCS) in hiring Project Clean & Green seasonal workers.

Media coverage is welcome and encouraged.

WHEN: Monday, April 21, 2014 1:00 p.m.

WHERE: Alley behind 3256 N. 3rd St. Between W. Ring and W. Concordia

WHO: Mayor Tom Barrett
Ald. Milele Coggs, 6th District (invited)
Commissioner Ghassan Korban, Dept. of Public Works
