DPW Milwaukee Milwaukee DPW ~ Enriching Lives We contribute to the quality of life and economic development of Milwaukee in many ways. We provide the cleanest, safest water in the country; we foster the growth and beauty of our urban forest and boulevards to the envy of others around the country; and we complete sewer, water and paving projects on or ahead of schedule.

At any hour, we plow snow to keep our streets safe for passage; we also provide reliable and efficient garbage and recycling collection.

The City of Milwaukee is pleased to announce the launch of the 2021 Active Streets program, which uses barricades and signage on residential streets to limit thru-motor vehicle traffic and encourage walking, biking and being physically active.

New this year, four community-based organizations—Northwest Side Community Development Corporation, Sixteenth Street Community Health Centers, United Methodist Children's Services and Metcalfe Park Community Bridges—will receive up to $5,000 in grant dollars to conduct outreach and programming, monitor street infrastructure and provide community feedback.

Additional funding will be used for partnerships with Artists Working in Education, Inc. to integrate art into Active Street locations.

I’m so glad the the streets in front of houses can’t get 1 pass of the plows right down the middle of the street in the Lincoln Creek area between 51st and 60th. I love watching the plow truck go by on Lincoln Creek with its plow up. #taxdollarsatwork
As a Thank You to our Tow Truck and Snow Plow drivers, stop in for a fresh, hot cup of coffee on US!!
Is everyone's garbage pickup pushed back this week? We are in Timmerman West and our scheduled day is today. I only see info that Tuesday's pickup was suspended due to plowing.
City of Milwaukee, why hasn't recycling been picked up in over 6 weeks??? We haven't had that much snow, it hasn't been super cold, what gives? I've been having to fill my trash bin with recyclables because my recycling bin has been full since Christmas.
So who's the cali transplant that thought non emergency road work on Burleigh was a good idea to start in november... in wisconsin....
For the love of (enter your belief), are they almost done with the drilling for that apartment complex on Van Buren & Kilbourn?!?!?!? 😫😁
I had a few questions and opted to send you a private message. Please respond when you have a minute! Thank you very much! ☺️
Bunch of crooks, you are. $25 appeal fee for a $50 fine that wasn't warranted!? Didn't "clear the snow from my sidewalk." Sure buddy, not only was it completely cleared, I received confirmation from the workers who were sent to clear my neighbors sidewalk, "nah man, you're good." Appeal form asks to "attach document" - how am I supposed to attach a video!? Get up to speed and stop robbing people you money grabbing swindlers!
When will the city be addressing their employees regarding the coronavirus and which should be staying home and which should be reporting to work? The employees haven heard anything! This is ridiculous!
