Clean Sweep

​Program Information​


The Wisconsin Clean Sweep is a grant program available to governmental entities and Tribes throughout Wisconsin that provides reimbursement to these entities for the collection and disposal of household hazardous waste, agriculture pesticides, and prescription drugs. Businesses that generate very small quantities of hazardous waste may also have the opportunity to use these collections. Collections may be one-day events or may be year-round sites-this all varies from entity to entity.

The Clean Sweep program started out as the Department of Agriculture, Trade, and Consumer Protection's (DATCP) way to collect and dispose of Agriculture hazardous waste. In 2003, state legislature merged the DNR's existing Household Hazardous waste program with DATCP's agriculture hazardous waste program under the jurisdiction of DATCP. The Clean Sweep's reach was extended to unwanted prescription drugs in 2007.

As of today, the Clean Sweep has collected over 4 million pounds of agriculture waste, over 39 million pounds of household hazardous waste, and over 500,000 pounds of unwanted prescription drugs.
