NHU Partners with Calumet County for Clean Sweep Event
New Holstein Utilities is partnering with Calumet County for the annual Clean Sweep Event. New Holstein is hosting a site for the May 15, 2009 event. The program will be held at the City Garage, located at 1319 Taft Street, from 3-6 pm.
Calumet County's annual Clean Sweep Event provides homeowners, farmers and small businesses with the opportunity to dispose of unwanted hazardous waste. Certain products may be brought to the event and disposed of at no cost. Some of the materials that will be accepted at no cost include:
Unwanted prescription and over-the-counter drugs/medications will also be accepted during this event. Please keep prescriptions and medications in a separate bag, box or container for the drop-off at this event. By keeping these items separate it will allow you to be processed quickly and efficiently by the program volunteers.
Representatives from New Holstein Utilities will be on hand at the Clean Sweep Event to accept light bulbs, ballasts, batteries (no car batteries), computer equipment (monitors, CPUs, keyboards), and televisions. Please be aware that there is a fee to have these items disposed of and you will be charged for these items. To view New Holstein Utilities' recycling service fees click here. You may pay by cash or personal check. All four and eight foot light bulbs and ballasts must be placed in a carton or box, closed and taped to secure the materials. The number of items must be clearly written on the container or box. NHU reserves the right to deny acceptance of any product.
Items that will not be accepted as a part of this event includes explosives, radioactive material (such as smoke detectors), compressed gas or propane tanks, and ammunition.
