Due to the forecast of 10+ inches of snow predicted for the Green Bay area, the City of Green Bay Public Works Department has suspended trash and recycle collection on Monday, January 28, 2019. This week will be treated like a holiday week (without the holiday). Monday's collection will now occur on Tuesday, January 29, and the rest of the week will follow suit, as outlined below:
Monday, January 28 will be collected on Tuesday, January 29
Tuesday, January 29 will be collected on Wednesday, January 30
Wednesday, January 30 will be collected on Thursday, January 31
Thursday, January 31 will be collected on Friday, February 1
Friday, February 1 will be collected on Saturday, February 2
Residents who normally have a Monday collection are advised to keep their trash and recycle carts off the curb until late Monday night after the snowstorm has subsided. Please remember that all carts must be placed at the curb by 6 a.m. on the day of collection in order to be collected. Recycle collection will still only be on the west side of the city this week, with east side recycle collection occurring as scheduled next week.
Resident safety is extremely important. If you are able to stay home and off the roads, please do so. If you must leave your home and drive, please use extra caution, driving slower than usual and leaving earlier if necessary. A full-city snow plow operation began on Monday, January 28 at 4 a.m. Snow will continue to fall throughout the day and the Public Works Department anticipates starting a second plow operation upon conclusion of the first plow.
Residents are also reminded to keep their sidewalks clear after the snowstorm has passed. City ordinance allows residents 24 hours from the completion of the storm to clear the public sidewalks in front of their homes.
