Sherman Park Residents

Project Clean and Green is coming to our neighborhood the week of April 12th- April 16th. Sherman Park is in Zone 1. Project Clean & Green is a city-wide program designed to foster neighborhood pride and ownership through coordinated clean up. Collection crews will target one zone each week from April 12-May 21 and collect up to six (6) cubic yards per dwelling unit of unwanted furniture, mattresses or household items and garden/yard debris in paper yard waste bags.

How it Works
On your regular garbage collection day during your assigned Project Clean and Green zone week, residents should place their unwanted items at their regular garbage collection point – either the curb or alley line. In most cases, everything will be picked up on garbage collection day, but allow through the following business day for all items to be collected.

Residents must use brown paper yard waste bags available at area stores for their garden/yard waste.

For curb pick-up, please ensure that all items are kept out of the street and instead placed along the area between the sidewalk and curb, on the lawn edge if there is no sidewalk, or at the end of the driveway. For alley collection, place items at the alley line.

Items not accepted
DPW will not pick up appliances, tires, TVs and other electronics (such as computers, printers, scanners, tablets, etc.), construction debris, paint and paint thinner, motor oil, and other hazardous waste. We encourage making use of DPW Drop Off Centers or MMSD to properly dispose of those items.

Project Clean & Green is coming to your neighborhood soon! Project Clean & Green is a City-wide program designed to foster neighborhood price through coordinated clean up.

Learn more about the program and which week we'll be in your neighborhood at www.Milwaukee.gov/cleanandgreen.

DHS Investing $6.1 Million to Promote Equity in COVID-19 Vaccine Program

Grant program will leverage community partnerships
The Wisconsin Department of Health Services (DHS) today announced a $6.1 million investment to support community-based organizations in raising awareness and access to COVID-19 vaccine among communities that have faced both historical and current barriers to health care services and the COVID-19 vaccine.

$3.1 million of the investment will fund efforts to activate organizations to serve as trusted messengers to build vaccine confidence and reduce barriers that may impede vaccinations in urban and rural areas.

Please support diaper need in the Sherman Park Community.

Diaper need is the lack of a sufficient supply of diapers to keep an infant or child clean, dry, and healthy.

Did you know that, according to the National Diaper Bank Network, 1 in 3 American families in 2020 has reported experiencing diaper need? Did you know that disposable diapers can cost $70 to $80 per month per baby and that no state or federal child safety-net program allocates dollars specifically for the purchase of diapers?

We appreciate your support.
