Sauk County Clean Sweep September 28, 2019
 
Sauk County will hold a hazardous waste Clean Sweep event from 8:30 a.m. to noon on Saturday, September 28, at the former Sauk County landfill, E8795 Evergreen Lane, Baraboo.  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. 
 
Businesses that qualify as Very Small Quantity Generators (VSQGs) and agricultural businesses are required to preregister by September 21.  A fee will be charged for non-farm businesses.
 
Resource Solutions will be handling 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.
 
The longest lines at Clean Sweep are for paint disposal, but people who have only latex paint to drop off could avoid the lines and throw the paint away in their regular trash. 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.
 
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.
