The City of Green Bay Department of Public Works will begin its spring curbside collection of loose leaves, garden waste, and grass clippings on Monday, April 24th, 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.
Deadline: Yard waste placed to the curb after May 14 WILL NOT be collected by the City.
Residents are responsible for disposing of their own yard waste after the spring collection period, or they will be assessed a fee for 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.
Residents are reminded that raking leaves into the street increases pollution of storm water, may cause flooding by blocking drainage structures, and most importantly, piles of leaves in the street are a dangerous attraction to young children.
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 the obstruction.

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 6:00am to 8:00pm.
