Milwaukee's Renewable Resources

reuse sites

Milwaukee is big on reusing stuff. Watch for rummage sales every weekend during the summer. If you haul something to the curb and it's still useful, someone is bound to pick it up. Metal stuff often gets carted away by enterprising collectors in their pickup trucks.
