Grant Description
Grants to Wisconsin local government agencies, tribes, special districts, and regional planning commissions for programs that reduce the health risks of hazardous medical wastes. Funding is intended to collect and dispose of unwanted prescription drugs. Collections may be one-day events or year-round sites.


Additional Eligibility Criteria
- Eligible applicants are municipalities such as a city, town, village, county, tribal nation, regional planning commission or metropolitan sewerage district, or an association of two or more municipalities or tribes.
- State agencies, colleges, universities, and private businesses are not eligible for grants.

Ineligible Reimbursable Costs include:
- Facility lease or rental. Use cost as a match.
- Capital purchases (cameras, scales, alarms, testing equipment, storage sheds), or the utility bills to power the site. These costs can be used as matches.
- Overtime: Because Saturday is viewed as a “normal” working day for all clean sweeps, municipal overtime reimbursement will not be authorized for Saturday work. Contracted labor rates will apply on Saturdays.
