City of Green Bay Leaf & Garden Waste Collection Begins October 9th

Posted on 9-14-2023

The City of Green Bay Department of Public Works will begin its fall curbside collection of loose leaves and garden waste on Monday, October 9th, 2023. 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 material will not be picked up. 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 to the obstruction.

Deadline November 19th: Yard waste placed at the curb after November 19th WILL NOT be collected. 

Residents are responsible for disposing of their own yard waste after the fall collection period, or they will be assessed a fee for collection. Please see Yard Waste Drop-Off Center information below:

The City of Green Bay Department of Public Works Yard Waste Drop-Off Centers are open daily (including weekends) April 1st until Thanksgiving Day from 6am to 8pm. The winter schedule from Thanksgiving Day to March 31st are Saturdays and Sundays only – from 7am to 5pm.

Residents may bring their brush, tree trimmings, loose leaves, grass clippings, and garden waste to either of the City’s two yard waste drop-off sites located at 2530 East Shore Drive on the east side, and 1470 Hurlbut Street on the west side.

Contractor generated yard waste debris is NOT acceptable at these sites, nor at the curb for City collection.

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. Similar to past collection periods, Public Works staff will be recording violations.

Further information may be obtained by calling the Department of Public Works – Operations Division at (920) 448-3535 or visiting the City’s website at
