MILWAUKEE (WITI) — The city of Milwaukee’s Department of Public Works needs your help with its annual “Project Clean & Green.”

The program will run from April 14th through June 4th.

With spring cleaning in full swing, Project Clean & Green is a citywide program designed to foster neighborhood pride through coordinated pick up of excess household debris, street and alley sweeping, nuisance inspections, graffiti removal, and other neighborhood beautification activities sponsored by community organizations.

The city of Milwaukee has been segmented into seven collection zones.

Residents within an assigned zone can place their unwanted furniture, mattresses, household items, up to two cubic yards of tree trimmings, up to five tires, and extra recyclables at their regular garbage collection point – either the curb or alley line – on their regular collection day.

DPW crews will pick up excess, unwanted household 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 cubic yard (about the size of an easy chair), and will be charged those amounts after the program week passes.

Residents can go to http://mpw.milwaukee.gov/services/garbage_day to find out when pickup is scheduled for a specific block/street/neighborhood.

The following items WILL NOT be picked up:

  • Appliances
  • TVs and other electronics, such as computers, printers, scanners, tablets, etc.
  • Construction debris
  • Paint
  • Grass, yard waste, and more than two cubic yards of tree trimmings

These items can be taken to either of two City Self-Help Center sites for proper disposal.

    Woah! I’m really loving the template/theme of this
    site. It’s simple, yet effective. A lot of times it’s tough to get
    that “perfect balance” between usability and visual
    appeal. I must say you have done a excellent job with this.
    Additionally, the blog loads extremely fast for me on Opera.
    Exceptional Blog!
