What is a Clean Sweep?

It is a voluntary, state/county program for the legal, safe, and convenient disposal of hazardous wastes from homes, farms, and businesses. The Clean Sweep program has been operating since 1990.

Why Should I Participate?

Hazardous chemicals can cause health, safety, or environmental problems. Improperly stored or disposed chemicals can pollute ground and surface waters.     Participants will not be held liable for the proper disposal of materials collected.

Who Can Participate?

All Wood County residents can participate.

Is There a Cost to Participate?

Households and farms are allowed to dispose of hazardous waste without charge; however, quantities may be restricted.

Businesses and schools can use Clean Sweep to dispose of unwanted chemicals in an easy, low cost way. To obtain a FREE, no obligation, disposal estimate, contact Chris Bahlow at Veolia, by SEPTEMBER 22ND at chris.bahlow@veolia.com, or call 715-298-2623.
