When will my items be picked up during the week? 

Crews will do ONE sweep of the entire City throughout our collection week, going down each street only once.  While your items will be picked up at some point during this duration, the timeframe crews will reach your particular street throughout the week is unknown based on numerous variables, like weather, the volume of garbage in particular areas that may require more or less time to finish, and staff availability to conduct regular department tasks and operations (garbage pick-up, etc.). Simply put, it is essential to have your items to the curb by 6:30 am on Monday in order to ensure collection because crews will get to your items at an unknown time during the week of collection, based on numerous surrounding factors. 

I missed the curbside collection time or would like to dispose of large items myself at a different time. What can I do with my items?

If you missed the scheduled curbside collections or you're seeking to dispose of large items yourself during different timeframes, items can be brought to the City of De Pere Drop-off Site during its open months of operation. More information about that location can be found here. Residents can call the office at (920) 339-4060 to schedule a special pickup (for a fee).
