What is Clean Sweep?
Clean Sweep is a place to bring hazardous household materials such as Oil-Based Paints and Paint-Related Products, Pesticides & Poisons, Household Products Containing Organic Solvents, Ignitables, and Aerosols, and Rechargeable Batteries.
Why Clean Sweep?
By providing the public with an opportunity to safely dispose of such hazardous products, we keep these products out of landfills and lower the environmental risks associated with such improper disposal. The payoff is a cleaner, healthier environment.

- Friday May 24th

Agricultural Clean Sweep Grants
Dane County received a Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (WDATCP) agricultural clean
sweep grant award for 2013. This grant underwrites our disposal costs so there will be no cost to farmers to dispose
of agriculturally-related and household wastes through the Dane County Clean Sweep program in 2013, and agricultural
businesses will pay only one-half the normal business cost to dispose of agriculturally-related waste materials.
