View the 2016 Northwest Cleansweep Schedule!!!

The NW Counties of Wisconsin host special mobile hazardous waste collections during the summer months and all county residents are encouraged to participate. Residents in the following counties are encouraged to utilize ANY of the collections offered, the counties are: Ashland, Bayfield, Burnett, Douglas, Iron, Price, Rusk, Sawyer, Taylor and Washburn. The products accepted free of charge to households are: oil-based paint (NO LATEX accepted, or empty cans), antifreeze, pesticides and herbicides, batteries (no alkaline or car batteries accepted), household cleaners, old gasoline and aerosols. There is a nominal charge for items such as fluorescent and high-density light bulbs, and oil filters. Businesses and farmers are also encouraged to participate in these summer events. Agricultural/farm related products are free of charge for the first 200 lbs. to farmers, with a nominal fee imposed for businesses. Registration is required for both businesses and farmers by contacting Jen by Email or at 715-635-2197.

Materials are collected via scheduled events held during the spring, summer and fall throughout the ten-county region. Once materials are collected, they are transported to the Cleansweep hazardous waste treatment facility in Spooner where they are further segregated and packaged for ultimate delivery to a licensed hazardous waste contractor.

Also available to businesses, schools and municipalities is a special mobile hazardous waste collection called the “Milk-Run” program, which is designed to accept hazardous wastes during the fall and spring months. There is a fee charged for this service. Please call Warren for more information about our Milk Run program at 715-520-7215.
