Clean Sweep is an opportunity for homeowners, agricultural enterprises, and businesses to dispose of hazardous products and items that pose an environmental risk, such as pesticides and toxic cleaning products. Hazardous waste will be collected at no charge, however, there are fees for tires, some electronic items, and appliances.
Latex paint and motor oil are not accepted at the Sauk County Clean Sweep events. Latex paint is non-hazardous, but it must be solidified before throwing away. It’s easy to dry out: If you have a small amount, simply remove the lid and allow it to dry outside. Mix larger amounts with cat litter or a paint-drying product sold at hardware stores. Never dispose of liquid paint in your trash.
Resource Solutions handles the disposal of electronic items and appliances. Fees may apply. Contact Resource Solutions at (608) 244-5451 for more information and pricing. Cash, credit, or checks payable to Resource Solutions will be collected at drop-off. A touch-free payment option will also be available for those who would like to pay by card.
Pharmaceuticals, IVs, and needles will not be accepted. Residents can drop off unwanted medications at various police departments throughout the county and at the Sauk County Sheriff’s Department.
Other items that Clean Sweep cannot accept include mattresses, furniture, explosives, detonators, blasting caps, radioactive materials including smoke alarms, infectious and biological waste, compressed gas cylinders, asbestos, demolition materials, recyclables, and yard and household waste.
