May Clean Sweep Event Cancelled

Baraboo, WI – The Sauk County Clean Sweep event scheduled to occur on May 30 has been cancelled in order to ensure and preserve the health and safety of Sauk County citizens and event workers from risks associated with COVID-19.

The fall event is currently set for Saturday, September 26, 8:30 until noon, at the former Sauk County landfill, E8795 Evergreen Lane, Baraboo. Like previous Clean Sweeps, it will provide for disposal of electronics, appliances and tires, along with hazardous waste. We are working to expand this event because of a higher volume of materials expected at that time. More detailed information will be provided after those plans have been finalized.

Please note that latex paint will no longer be accepted at the Sauk County Clean Sweep events. Latex paint is non-hazardous, but it must be solidified before throwing away in your regular trash.  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!

If you have items that you need to dispose of before the September 26, please check the Clean Sweep Alternatives list. Be sure to call and check with the business before dropping off items to ensure that they are still open and accepting drop-offs.
