DPW will collect live Christmas trees placed at the standard collection point in the alley or at the curb. To be collected, cut trees must be free of all decorations and must not be bagged. We also encourage citizens to utilize our Drop Off Centers as a convenient way to quickly dispose of trees. Visit Milwaukee.gov/holidaytrees for more information.

As we start the new year, make sure to check how to properly dispose of any unwanted holiday decorations.

The Leaf Collection Deadline has been extended. City of Milwaukee residents now have until the end of day Sunday, November 26, 2023 to rake their leaves into the street for pick-up.

The leaf rake-out period has been extended to provide residents additional time to rake leaves from trees that are experiencing a late leaf drop this year. This extension allows eleven additional days from the ordinance’s November 15 rake-out deadline.

The City’s leaf collection operations on average keep 15,000 tons of leaves per year out of our waterways and sewer system and instead allow the leaves to be converted to nutrient rich compost.

Leaf collection guidelines here:
