Clean Sweep programs provide the public with opportunities to safely and legally dispose of unwanted pesticides, household products and chemicals. Clean Sweep programs are funded through grant money from Wisconsin’s Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP). This program collects, treats, stores, or disposes of waste in an environmentally safe method through a licensed hazardous waste facility. Hazardous wastes can usually be identified by products which contain any of the following words:  caution, warning, danger, poison, toxic, ignitable or flammable, acid, corrosive or reactive.

This program helps the public with the opportunity to dispose of unwanted pesticides, household products and chemicals for disposal before they cause problems so we can keep ourselves, our children and the environment safe.
