The City of Green Bay Department of Public Works will begin its spring curbside collection of loose leaves, garden waste, and grass clippings on Monday, April 10, 2017. This material should be placed out to the curb in separate piles and should not be co-mingled. Bagged or co-mingled material will not be picked up.
MAY 7, 2017 – DEADLINE FOR YARD WASTE ITEMS TO BE PLACED AT THE CURB FOR FINAL COLLECTION.
Yard waste left at the curb after the City’s final rotation is subject to collection fees.
During non-designated City curbside collection periods, residents are responsible for disposing of their own yard waste, see Drop-off Center information below.
Residents are reminded that raking leaves into the street increases pollution of storm water, may cause flooding by blocking drainage structures and most importantly, piles of leaves in the street are a dangerous attraction to young children.
Please refrain from piling yard waste next to trees, poles, mailboxes or other obstructions as this slows down collection crews and may cause damage to equipment or the obstruction.
YARD WASTE DROP – OFF CENTERS
The City of Green Bay Department of Public Works Yard Waste Drop-Off Centers are now open daily (including weekends & holidays) from 8:00 AM to sunset. These sites will remain open seven (7) days a week through the fall of 2017.
Residents may bring their loose leaves, grass clippings, and garden waste to either of the City’s two yard waste drop-off sites. The Yard Waste Drop-Off Centers are located at 2530 East Shore Drive on the east side and 1470 Hurlbut Street on the west side.
Contractor generated/collected yard waste debris is NOT acceptable at these sites or at the curb for City collection.
