The City of Green Bay Department of Public Works will begin its fall curbside collection of loose leaves and garden waste on Monday, October 9th, 2023. This material should be placed out to the curb in separate piles (leaves/grass together and brush/branches together) and should not be co-mingled. Bagged material will not be picked up.
NOVEMBER 19, 2023 - DEADLINE FOR YARD WASTE ITEMS TO BE PLACED AT THE CURB FOR FINAL COLLECTION.
Yard waste placed to the curb after November 19th WILL NOT be collected by the city.
Residents are responsible for disposing of their own yard waste after the fall collection period, or they will be assessed a fee for collection. Please see Yard Waste Drop-Off Center information below.
Please note that placing yard waste in the road itself is against City ordinance, and residents who do so will be subject to collection fees and/or fines. Similar to past collection periods, Public Works staff will be recording violations.
Residents are reminded that raking leaves into the street (1) increases pollution of storm water; (2) may cause flooding by blocking drainage structures; (3) pose a dangerous attraction to young children; and (4) violates the terms of the City’s stormwater permit obligations.
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.
