City of Milwaukee Clean & Green starts Monday, April 12th, and runs through May 1st. Crews will collect up to six cubic yards (about the size of a recliner). These will occur during your usual garbage collection date.

According to the University of Washington’s College of Environment, calls to police were down

20% in neighborhoods were they did clean ups.

If you would like to work with SOC to coordinate a clean up on your block, neighborhood, vacant lot, or park – contact the SOC office at 414-672-8090 or

SOC can help you:

  • organize the clean up,
  • get equipment and supplies,
  • partner with other neighbors and community members like businesses and organizations,
