Program Information​​​​​​​​​​​​​​​

Wisconsin Clean Sweep is a grant program that provides reimbursement to communities that collect and dispose of household hazardous wastes, agricultural pesticides, and prescription drugs. Grants may be awarded to counties, towns, villages, cities, tribes, sanitary and sewerage districts, or regional planning commissions. Grants can support collecti​on and disposal of these products. Prescription drug grants can also be used to buy drop boxes.

Businesses that generate very small quantities of hazardous waste may also use these collections. Collections may be one-day events or may be year-round sites.

Some communities have collections, but do not receive Clean Sweep funding from DATCP.
