Clean Sweep is a special event hazardous waste collection program that is hosted by our municipal partners within select communities. The next Clean Sweep event will be held in Spring 2024.
2023 Clean Sweep - Monday, April 24, 2023
Hazardous Materials Collection Event
The Clean Sweep event is offered for Winnebago County residents, farms & businesses only. Material from another County will not be accepted. The program is free for Winnebago County residents and farmers. Businesses are responsible for their own disposal fees. View the list below for the items we can accept during this event.
Accepted Hazardous Materials
Many of the materials accepted are labeled as corrosive, poison, flammable or combustible. Examples include:
Weed control fertilizers
Oil/Lead based paint
Secure container lids and transport materials upright.
Ag & Household Hazardous Material Disposal
When disposed of improperly, ag and household hazardous materials have potential to threaten the quality of our environment and the safety of sanitation workers, as well as pose an accidental poison risk to children and pets. The Winnebago County Clean Sweep provides free hazardous material disposal services to in-county farms and households.
Business Hazardous Material Disposal
Hazardous materials will also be accepted from Winnebago County businesses identified as Very Small Quantity Generators (VSQG) during these collection events. Disposal fees apply to business materials. Eligible businesses may receive a 50 percent subsidy for disposal of pesticide wastes.
This program is funded by Winnebago County Solid Waste and by grant funds provided by Wisconsin Department of Agriculture, Trade and Consumer Protection (DATCP). For 2023, the cost remains free for Winnebago County residents and farmers utilizing this program. Monetary donations will be accepted during the event to help offset disposal and program costs.
