2017 Spring Loose Leaf Collection

MAY 7, 2017DEADLINE 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.

The Sanitation Section is responsible for collection and transportation of most residential and some commercial solid waste generated within the City of Green Bay. Sanitation Section operates 10 collection routes per day, five (5) on either side of the City, providing weekly collection service to all participants.

Residential recycling of paper, cardboard, plastic, glass, tin and aluminum is mandatory in the State of Wisconsin.  Every resident is required to separate recyclable material from other solid waste and place it in a City-approved recycling container for collection and proper processing.  Sanitation Section operates six (6) recycling routes on the east side and six (6) recycling routes on the west side bi-weekly.

The Sanitation Section also collects brush on a routine basis.  The brush is chipped and hauled to one of two (2) City-operated yard waste centers for processing and re-use. The final composted product, made from yard & garden waste along with brush, is made available at no charge to Green Bay residents, and sold to vendors.  The product is also sold to vendors for use as ground cover, boiler fuel and lawn/garden nutrient manufacturing.
