Clean Sweep provides free or low cost disposal of hazardous chemicals to all urban and rural residents of Rock County. There is a program for businesses too (see below; businesses must use the business program). Drop-off events are held every year in communities around the county.
For 2016, drop-off sites will be:
- Friday, June 17, Noon - 2 p.m., City of Edgerton Public Works Garage, 315 W. High Street
- Saturday, June 18, 9 a.m. - Noon, City of Beloit Public Works Garage, 2351 Springbrook Court
- Saturday, August 20, 9 a.m. - Noon, Rock County Public Works, 3715 Newville Road, Janesville
Businesses, schools, and agencies that produce less than 220 lbs/month or stores less than 2,205 lbs of hazardous waste per year can contract to use Clean Sweep drop-off sites and pay only disposal charges.
Detailed program information including what items are accepted, which are not, and what to recycle is enclosed and on the Rock County website (www.co.rock.wi.us/land-conservation-clean-sweep).
Clean Sweep is funded by a grant from the Wisconsin Department of Ag, Trade, and Consumer Protection and with donations from many area cities and towns and the county.
