As you are likely aware, the Mason Street (Don A. Tilleman) Bridge is currently not operational and is locked in a raised position. We will continue to work with our partners at the Wisconsin Department of Transportation to provide updates on the status of repairs as they become available. We have included a graphic showing the preferred detour route, which uses Monroe Avenue, Walnut Street, and Ashland Avenue. We appreciate your patience as our partners at WisDOT investigate the cause of the the issue and work to getting the bridge back into operation.

DPW Sanitation Collection Summer Hours Have Begun

City of Green Bay residents are reminded that trash and recycling collection crews work 6:00 AM to 2:00 PM between Memorial Day and Labor Day. So sanitation collection can occur as early as 6:00 AM.

Residents are reminded to place tipper carts to the curb prior to 6:00 AM on their regular collection day to assure collection. DPW has received numerous calls from residents this past week claiming that their trash or recycling was missed when in fact the tipper cart was not to the curb before 6:00 AM.

Sanitation tipper carts can be placed to the curb without penalty as early as 12:00 PM (noon) the day before collection day; and removed from the curb as late as 12:00 PM (noon) the day after collection day. At all other times, there is a penalty for leaving tipper carts at the curb.

Please make sure to have your tipper carts out on time, and have a safe summer.

Memorial Day Week Sanitation Collection Schedule

City of Green Bay residents are reminded that trash and recycling collection this week (May 31 to June 4, 2021) is shifted back one day due to the Memorial Day holiday on Monday, May 31. So today (Tuesday, June 1) DPW is collecting trash and recycling in Monday routes.

Sanitation collection will be one day behind all this week, with Friday routes being collected on Saturday, June 5. Residents are allowed to place their tipper carts out for their regular collection day. Penalties will NOT be assessed for tipper cart set-out on your regular collection day.

Also as a reminder that recycling collection this week is scheduled only on the east side of the City.

Memorial Day Holiday Sanitation Collection - 2021 DPW Service Guide (error)

Green Bay-DPW was informed of an error in the 2021 Memorial Day holiday week sanitation collection calendar. The 2021 Memorial Day holiday was originally noted as Monday, May 24, 2021. However, Memorial Day is actually Monday, May 31 this year.

This means that trash and recycling collection over the next 2 weeks will occur as follows:

Week of May 24 to 28 - Collection will occur on our REGULAR COLLECTION DAY (Monday to Friday) with recycling collection on the west side only

Week of May 31 to June 4/Memorial Day holiday week - Collection will occur ONE DAY BEHIND SCHEDULE (Tuesday to Saturday) with recycling collection on the east side only

Online DPW information has been modified to reflect the information correction. Please mark you calendar accordingly, and advise your neighbors.

GREEN BAY SPRING YARD WASTE COLLECTION IS DONE

On Friday (5/14/21) Green Bay's spring curbside yard waste collection program timeline expired.

DPW will not collect yard waste that was placed to the curb after Sunday, May 9 (Mother's Day). May 9 was the last day this spring to place yard waste to the curb for guaranteed collection.

If you believe DPW missed yard waste collection on your street during the last round of collection, please contact us directly. Do not message DPW on Facebook because staff does not check those messages regularly.

If DPW collects yard waste at curbside between now and the fall collection program in October, there will be a charge. It is less costly for residents to dispose of yard waste themselves than to allow DPW to tag and collect it. Please plan summertime yard clean-up activity accordingly.

City of Green Bay residents can haul yard waste to the yard waste center year-round. Yard waste centers (Hurlbut Street and East Shore Drive) are open 7 days per week during the growing season, and on Saturdays during winter months.

John Walczyk A cannot thank the crews enough for the fantastic job of clearing all the fallen trees and debris over the last couple of days. As early as 6 30 the following morning street cleaners, branch removal crews had our street cleared. Great Job and thank you for all the hard work.
Four sections of my sidewalk were marked with an X for replacement. There is nothing wrong with these sections except the finish is different. I am going to be charged to replace these. I think this is crazy and I am very upset about it. There is weakness at the top in Green Bay.
Today was trash pick up they never emptied our can its still full whats up with that ??
The old Fazoli's restaurant 2400 East Mason St., Green Bay, WI, (now Permanently closed) would be a Great Location for the NEW Popeye's Restaurant for Green Bay's East side location. It Already has a Drive-Thur window and Extra Parking across from it. Instead of waiting to get the Wally's Spot location, this location already has brick and mortar. Panera just opened up their new restaurant very close to this location. Smitco Eateries Inc. PLEASE think about using this location of the old East side Fazoli's. 🙂 Can't wait until we have one one this side of town. 😁
When is leaf pick up for east Green Bay please?
I would like to know why the main roads in the north west side of Green Bay were brined this morning. There is no snow or freezing rain in the forecast. To me this is a waste of recourses. I would like an explanation.
Thank you department of public works and Scott VanderVelden for the Epic parade this morning for our son Bennett.
What's happening on E. Mason Street, East of Main St? (The road is closed.)
Hello Green Bay, we are new residents here. We have some old toilets and sinks to get rid of, where can we bring these? And when, please. Thanks so much.
Thank you City of Green Bay Public Works for collecting our leaves. While no damage has been done to our terrace thus far, there has been damage in prior years--and that's ok. We just scooch the sod back in place and it grows back fine next year. It is WELL WORTH avoiding our having to lug loads and loads of leaves (massive backyard FULL of trees) to the waste center! Hoping you do one more round next week as we do have a final load to drag out to the terrace this weekend!!
OK they are doing leave pickup in our area now.....the street sweeper just went through and had to go around all the leaves that had been moved out to the street......DOES THAT MAKE ANY SENSE!!!!!! He literally had to go around all the leave piles still out in the road...........
I just want to say thank you to the sanitation worker who worked ridge rd today an picked up my pumpkin that somehow managed to end up in the road. And even carried it up my lawn an put it back in the right spot! The world needs more nice people like you!!
