Alderman Scott Spiker wants to remind residents that the annual program providing free bulky item collection for Milwaukee residents is returning to the 13th District starting Monday, May 13. The City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works initiative Project Clean & Green will occur from May 13 – 17. By 7 a.m. of your regular garbage collection day, items that you wish to be collected should be placed at your regular garbage collection point. In most cases, everything will be picked up on garbage collection day, but please allow through the following business day for all items to be collected.

Alderman Spiker notes, “I want to remind friends and neighbors that Project Clean and Green is coming to the Garden District beginning next week. This is a great opportunity to do some spring cleaning. Putting our bulky items out for the Department of Public Works to collect is a great way to reduce your clutter and take advantage of this free service.”

Collection crews will collect up to six cubic yards per property of unwanted furniture, mattresses or household items; they will also collect garden debris that is placed in paper yard waste bags. Please note that Project Clean and Green will not collect appliances, tires, televisions, and other electronics such as computers, printers, and tablets. Hazardous waste such as construction debris, paint, and motor oil will also not be collected. Please make use of Department of Public Works Drop Off Centers to safely dispose of those materials.
