Leaf Collection

Upcoming leaf collection dates:

  • SPRING 2022 UPDATE - DEADLINE EXTENDED: Due to the cold, wet spring, De Pere Public Works is extending our leaf collection an additional week, giving residents more time and opportunity to complete this task. All leaves and yard waste needs to be to the curb by 6:30 am on Monday, April 25. 2022 with the final collection starting on that morning at 6:30 am.
  • The Fall collections runs from October 17, 2022 through November 18, 2022 and staff asks that everything be placed at the curb no later than 6:30 AM on November 14th. Weather dependent, staff may continue collections past November 18th.

Beyond leaves, what else can be placed at the curb during leaf collection?

Grass clippings, lawn rakings, garden waste, and leaves can all be placed at the curb during this collection. Please ensure that it is on the terrace and not in the street.

Will my leaves be picked up on my garbage day?

Crews will collect throughout the City by following a regular rotation and making continual loops. It is not possible to accurately tell residents the exact day their yard waste will be picked up.

Printable Brush Collection Schedule

Will my brush be picked up on my garbage collection day?

Brush collection will probably not occur on your garbage collection day. Staff will only collect from each street one time during the scheduled collection so it is important to have it out by the start of collection. If brush is placed at the curb after Monday it will be the property owner's responsibility to dispose of it properly.

What should - and shouldn't - be placed at the curb during brush collection?

Brush consists of brush and tree trimmings only and these are the only things that will be collected.  Do not put grass clippings, lawn rakings, garden waste or leaves with your brush.

What should I do if the branches came down in a storm?

Please call our office at (920) 339-4060 to see if we will be offering a special collection due to the storm.

What should I do if the branches fell off my street tree?

Please call our office at (920) 339-4060 or the office of the Forestry Department at (920) 339-4065.
