Collection Estimates: Week of October 24
Estimates were updated on 10/20 - Collection maps at the bottom of the page are updated daily.
Fall leaf and yard waste collection began on October 3.
Crews will begin the week of October 24 collecting leaves and yard waste in the area of the west side within the Tuesday refuse district. If you live within the Tuesday refuse collection district on the west side, please consult the maps below prior to setting your leaves and yard waste to the curb. Material set to the curb shortly after crews have completed an area will for a few weeks until crews can rotate back to that neighborhood for the next round.
Also for the week of October 24, we predict that west side crews may be able to service the Wednesday and Thursday refuse collection districts. If you live in the Wednesday and Thursday refuse districts, we recommend that you place your material to the curb prior to October 24.
For the week of October 31, we predict that crews might be able to service the Friday and Monday refuse collection districts. Crews could potentially loop back to the Tuesday and Wednesday districts again during the week of November 7.
Remember, these are estimates and actual collection time can change due to workload, weather conditions, and equipment availability. Please use the collection maps at the bottom of this page for daily updates on the whereabouts of our collection crews.
Remember, you can also bring your leaves and yard waste to the drop off sites located at 1501 W. Badger Rd. or 402 South Point Rd.
- DO NOT PILE LEAVES AND YARD WASTE DIRECTLY IN THE STREET.
- DO NOT MIX BRUSH WITH YOUR LEAVES & YARD WASTE.
HOW TO USE THE MAPS:
To minimize the amount of time your leaf/yard waste pile is at the curb, click on the below map for the refuse collection area a day ahead of your own collection day. For example, if you have a Wednesday refuse collection day, you should click on the map for the Tuesday Refuse Collection area.
When the map for the refuse collection area the day before yours is colored blue, that means crews are currently collecting from that area. When crews finish that area, they will then be in your neighborhood. And you should have your leaf/yard waste out before crews get to your neighborhood, otherwise it could be set out late and not picked for weeks.
Therefore, when the map for the refuse collection area ahead of yours is blue, you should get your leaf/yard waste curb side. This method ensures your leaf/yard waste is ready prior to crews arriving in your neighborhood. It will shorten the amount of time the pile is on the terrace. And it ensures that you will not miss the crews and need to wait several weeks for the next collection.
The numbers on the map correspond to an internal numbering scheme for assigning zones to crews. They are not dates and can be ignored.
The areas of the map that are shaded blue are the ones currently receiving collection. You can track our progress by clicking through the maps and finding the ones with areas shaded blue. Maps are updated at the end of the work day and do not update automatically when crews finish an area.
