Clean Sweep Hazardous Waste Collection
St. Croix County’s annual Clean Sweep was held on May 17th and 18th this year. The Clean Sweep was held at the Highway County Shop on Highway 12. The event was very successful as we had 376 residents participate resulting in 23,585 pounds of hazardous waste collected. It was 47% increase in participates over 2012 as well as 47% increase in total waste collected over last year.
St. Croix County’s annual Tire Roundup was held on June 1, 2013 at four locations throughout the County; Town of Troy, City of Hudson, Village of Hammond, and Town of Richmond. The total number of tires collected was 2,236; this was a 42% increase over the collection in 2012. The total tonnage increased 38% over 2012, collecting 37.39 tons of tires.
During the year St. Croix County holds two appliance collections; one in the spring, June 1, 2013 and one in the fall, September 21, 2013. The following are the locations where the appliances were collected during the spring: City of Hudson, Village of Woodville, and Town of Town. The collection in June collected 276 appliances. This was down 13% over 2012 collection. This year with the fall collection the County hopes to increase the number of appliance collected. The locations for the fall collection are Town of Glenwood and Town of Richmond. In the past, both of these municipalities did well in their collection of appliances.
