Clean Sweep Expands With New Winter Hours | Environment
The Clean Sweep Program for recycling household hazardous waste will be open with new winter hours. This is the first such seasonal expansion of the program, according to county officials.
In recognition of this, Dane County Executive Joe Parisi said that "Clean Sweep is a highly successful program that has kept unnecessary and hazardous waste out of the county landfill. We're excited to announce its expansion into the winter months and encourage people can take advantage of it."
Madison mayor Paul Soglin added, “Clearly the generation of hazardous waste is not restricted to one season. I am pleased that the Clean Sweep Program is expanding, as it will not only remove the hazardous materials from our homes but help maintain the integrity of our environment.”
Dane County is trying out a limited winter season during these hours:
2012 Winter Hours:
- Jan. 1 through Apr. 27
- Tuesdays through Fridays from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.
Due to the fact that our existing facility is located on an outdoor site, we are limited with the services we can provide during these new winter season hours.
