Yard Waste

Fall 2020 Loose Leaf and Yard Waste Collection Information

The Fall 2020 Loose Leaf and Yard Waste collection will begin October 12.

The City of Green Bay Department of Public Works will begin its fall curbside collection of loose leaves, garden waste, and grass clippings on October 12. 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 or co-mingled material will not be picked up.

Yard Waste Collection will continue throughout Friday November 20th as long as weather allows for it. Placement of yard waste to the curb can be done until Sunday November 15th.

As leaf collection begins, please note that Public Works employees are using social distancing practices to stay safe and healthy. We kindly ask that you please let the crews do their jobs and remain at least six feet or more away from where they are working. The Public Works Department is always happy to take any comments or concerns safely and securely over the telephone. If you have a comment or concern, please call us at (920) 448-3535 so we can assist. Thank you very much for your cooperation in keeping both you and our Public Works crews safe.

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.

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.

Contractor generated/collected yard waste debris is NOT acceptable at these sites or at the curb for City collection.

Unfortunately, staff is unable to provide specific dates and times for when your leaf and yard waste collection will occur, so the Department of Public Works appreciates your patience while we proceed through the routes for collection. We will attempt at least one round in every neighborhood per week. Please review the tables below for updates on where the crews have recently been collecting.
