The staff of the City of Green Bay mourns the passing of Ashwaubenon Village President, Mike Aubinger. “Mike was a good partner and supported the cooperation of our two communities especially as we worked to revitalize the Titletown District. Mike loved Ashwaubenon and had great respect for Green Bay. I’ll miss him.”
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.
Information concerning the above programs may be obtained by calling the Department of Public Works-Operations Division at 448-3535 or visiting the City’s web site at www.greenbaywi.gov/publicworks.

I also invite those from the cities around Green Bay and Wausau to come testify before the committee as well.

You’ve heard of STEM. We’ve decided to crank up the creativity and roll out the STEAM Engine. The inclusion of the Arts completes the acronym: Science,
Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. The Neville Museum has climbed aboard to assist idea makers while fostering intelligence in communities through education, discussion and celebration.
Green Bay residents need an outlet to develop their creative ideas. Unless you’re already well connected within a leadership circle in Green Bay, finding help for an idea can be difficult. The STEAM Engine plows a path for anyone in Green Bay wanting to expand an idea and to engage in a noncompetitive and encouraging network of professionals.
The Greater Green Bay area is home to three major higher education facilities. We’ve networked with the faculty of UWGB, St. Norbert College, and NWTC to provide astute perspectives in the fields of Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts and Mathematics. We’ve also linked with multiple public and
private businesses working in the STEAM fields to participate in the event.
The first of four STEAM Engine events will take place on February 21st at 6:30pm. The evening, which is free and open to the public, will kick off in the Neville’s auditorium with Phase One, a series of 4-5 ten minute presentations. Each presentation will be unique and cover a broad range of topics
from bazaar artistic installations to cutting edge technological advancements and the best part of it all, ANYONE can be a presenter! At the end of each presentation a brief Q and A will take place with field professionals and the audience.
Phase Two will continue the momentum with engaged discussion accompanied by free apps and drinks for purchase from the Titletown Brewing Company. While the needs of individuals are being met at the STEAM Engine events the ultimate beneficiaries of a successful ideas forum are the economic and communal climates of Green Bay.
Want to ensure the conversation continues? Join The City of Green Bay and the growing list of sponsors who understand the value in assisting our idea makers and developing Green Bay’s STEAM future.
