by the Waukesha County Green Team
The Waukesha Countywide Cleanup brings together Waukesha County residents to clean up litter and debris from our parks, trails, roadways, rivers, forests and green spaces to maintain a safe, healthy and natural environment for our feathered, furry, and scaly friends, and for all Waukesha County residents to live and thrive.

Green Alliance Sustainability Fair
The Green Alliance is an initiative of the Waukesha County Green Team to proactively develop a strong network of organizations, businesses, government and individuals around the necessity for sustainability in Waukesha County with the intent to maximize positive change. The Green Alliance Sustainability Fair, held in August at Lapham Peak, is a fun interactive way for Waukesha County residents and families to learn about a wide variety of environmental topics and sustainable practices.
Wales Green Market
The Wales Main Street Green Market, sponsored by the Wales Green Team, is a one day event along the Drumlin state bicycle trail with over 30 vendors and displays. The market takes place in both the spring and fall. In 2017 the Wales Green Team is hosting “Think Green, it’s Friday” markets on 4 evenings during the summer.
Waukeshines Group Solar Buy
Waukesha County Green Team is working together with SunVest Solar, a national solar developer based in Pewaukee, Wisconsin, on the Waukeshines Group Solar Buy project. Waukeshines aims to provide Waukesha County residents the opportunity to learn more about solar energy with community educational sessions, as well as participate in a countywide solar group buy. The group buy will allow participants to receive solar panel installation on their homes at a discount.
