Clean Out the Closet Day- August 8

Location: At the new parking lot across from the Farmers’ Market (6th & Norwich)

Time: 1:30-4:30 pm

Keep Greater Milwaukee Beautiful and the Garden District have arranged for this “Clean Out the Closet” event. This is a chance to get rid of your old clothes, belts, purses, sheets, bedspreads, blankets, curtains, drapes, towels, boots, shoes, throws, rugs, quilts, and sofa covers. The clothing is sold second hand, recycled into wiping cloths, or reprocessed into fibers. Clothing and household textiles make up nearly five percent of the waste stream, and dropping off your material, recycles and helps fund Garden District projects.
