LAST CALL to place City of Green Bay Spring yard Waste to the Street

Green Bay residents are reminded that the last day to place yard waste to the street this spring is Sunday, May 9 (Mother's Day) 2 days from today if they want 100% assurance of collection

During the week of May 10 to 14, DPW will make its final round of collection through the City. Then curbside yard waste collection will be done until the fall collection program is scheduled in October.

Yard waste placed to the curb after May 9 will not be collected if DPW has already been past you house on the final round. If DPW must collect yard waste placed to the road late, there will be a charge for collection. It will be less costly for residents to haul late yard waste to the yard waste center, than to pay DPW to collect it. Please plan your spring yard clean-up activity accordingly.

City of Green Bay residents are reminded that they can haul yard waste to the yard waste center year-round, even during spring and fall curbside collection periods. Green Bay's 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.

Green Bay Spring Yard Waste Collection Begins today 4/12/21

Green Bay-DPW began its spring curbside yard waste collection program this morning at 7:00 AM. Please make sure to place all material on the terrace and not on the street pavement. DPW will be enforcing this rule. If residents prefer not to place yard and garden waste on their terrace, they can still haul it to one of the two City yard waste facilities

DPW crews are in Thursday sanitation collection routes today. Residents are allowed to place material to the street until Sunday, May 9 (Mother's Day). DPW will make numerous rounds through the City during the spring collection period. After Friday, May 14 DPW will stop collecting yard waste at the curb for the remainder of the summer.

Stay tuned for daily updates to DPW's spring collection progress.

Green Bay Spring Yard Waste Collection Begins Monday 4/12/21

If Green Bay residents have not started their springtime yard clean-up projects, DPW encourages you to start soon. On Monday 4/12/21, DPW will begin collecting (no-charge) yard waste at curbside for City of Green Bay residents. Please make sure to place all material on the terrace and not on the street pavement. DPW will be enforcing this rule.

DPW understands that some residents prefer to not place yard waste to the curb for various reasons. If residents prefer not to set yard and garden waste on the terrace, they can still haul it to one of the two City yard waste facilities during the curbside collection period instead of placing it to the curb. All material is processed the same way regardless of how it gets to the yard waste center.

Stay tuned to this page throughout the spring clean-up period for updates on DPW’s collection progress. DPW has received many requests to post exactly where crews are collecting throughout each day so residents can prepare accordingly. Unfortunately the system is set up to track only 1) where crews have been based on end-of-day field reports, and 2) which areas DPW will visit the next workday based on collection progress from the previous day. The order of streets visited when in each route is not specifically defined, and collection rates vary from route to route. So posting of super-specific collection location information is not practical.

Stay tuned for more information as the spring collection program continues

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!!
Green Bay-DPW Yard Waste Letter (clarification) City of Green Bay-DPW recently mailed thousands of notices to residents identified with yard waste in the street during the March/April 2020 collection period. The letter is intended to educate recipients. No back-citations will be issued. But the City will increase enforcement going forward. DPW has been overwhelmed with calls regarding content of the letter. Most answers are contained in the letter. But it appears there is still some confusion. This post will attempt to clarify the situation. To boil down the letter's content, the City wishes to get the following facts out to the public: 1) Residents who recently received a yard waste letter were found with yard waste in the roadway during the March/April 2020 collection program 2) Placing yard and garden waste in the roadway has been against City ordinance for many years. There have been no changes in City ordinance. 3) The City has experienced difficulty meeting Federal (EPA) and State (DNR) rules related to storm water runoff. So unfortunately DPW must start enforcing the 'items in roadway' ordinance to get back in compliance. 4) Starting with the October/November 2020 yard and garden waste collection program, all Green Bay residents are reminded that they CANNOT place yard waste in the roadway. All waste must be placed on the terrace per City ordinance. 5) Citations will not be issued to residents who received a letter. The letter was merely intended to inform residents of violations noted during the spring of 2020, so the will not be repeated during the fall of 2020. It is hoped that this list answers many questions. DPW asks that anybody who reads this post share it with other Green Bay residents. The goal is to spur compliance, not to issue citations. Thank you for your support on this issue. Wishing all a safe and enjoyable fall season.
Green Bay Recent Yard Waste Notice/Letter (explanation) City of Green Bay-DPW recently sent several thousand notices to Green Bay residents, advising them that their 2020 spring yard waste set-out process did not meet rules established by City ordinance. DPW has been receiving many calls regarding these letters, and wishes to clarify the intent of the letter. Associated with Federal (EPA) and State (DNR) rules, City ordinance prohibits Green Bay residents from placing yard and garden waste directly on the street. Residents are reminded that all waste must be placed on the terrace; not in the road for the following reasons: 1) Leaf piles block the flow of storm water runoff, and cause flooding 2) When storm water in the gutter flows through leaves, it makes a tea-like liquid (leaf tea) that contains phosphorous and other water contaminants 3) Leaf tea negatively impacts aquatic life by causing algae blooms and harms aquatic life 4) Kids sometimes play in leaf piles. Playing in the street is dangerous and not recommended. Residents who received a letter are merely being reminded that what DPW saw at their address in spring of 2020 is in violation of City ordinance. All Green Bay residents are reminded to place their yard and garden waste on the terrace this fall. Violations can result in citations. DPW honestly prefers to not issue citations. The preference is to educate and spur residents to comply with our City's laws. DPW thanks all residents in advance for keeping their yard waste out of the road during the 2020 fall collection program (starting Monday, 10/12/20). If you have any questions, don't hesitate to call or e-mail DPW. Please do not post questions to this page. DPW uses Facebook for sharing information, and does not check posts routinely.
Has curbside yard waste fall collection been determined yet?
I don't understand why we have to pay $95 for a recycling bin. If we rent, shouldn't the landlord have to get one? Doesn't Green Bay care about the environment enough to issue them?
