About Clean Sweep
Clean Sweep is held every year in Rock County. Dates and locations vary. County residents may use Rock County sites for free or a small fee for additional volume. Businesses must use Business Clean Sweep (see below for details).
NO LATEX PAINT. Latex paint can be recycled for a small fee per gallon at Ace Hardware stores in Beloit, Janesville, and Monroe OR it can be made solid and put in trash with lids off. Trash handlers must see that material is solid. To solidify, add absorbent material. For large amounts, line container with plastic, harden one-inch depth at a time. Latex paint is not hazardous but is a real mess when it spills on curbs, roads, and in trash handling equipment.
