Yard Waste

Christmas Tree Collection

Christmas tree collection will be begin the week of January 11th and conclude January 30th.

Weekly Spring Yard Waste Collection

Weekly curb side yard waste pickup in the spring begins April 13 and runs to May 17, 2021.  

Weekly yard waste pick up will be the day following your normally scheduled refuse collection.  We do not collect loose brush during this time.  See the front page of the 2021 Recycling and Refuse Guide

Monthly Yard Waste & Brush Collection

Beginning on June 7 through November 22, 2021, yard waste is picked up monthly.  See page the front page of the 2021 Recycling and Refuse Guide for pickup dates in your area.  All yard waste must be in 35 gallon garbage cans with handles, bushel baskets, or smaller containers which weigh less than 50 pounds each.  Biodegradable paper bags (30 gallon) may be used.

Hedge trimmings, garden debris, and fine brush should be placed loosely in cans or baskets not to exceed 35 gallons in size or 50 pounds in weight or in 30 gallon biodegradable paper bags.  Small amounts of brush should be bundled, 2 feet in diameter by 4 feet long and tied with heavy cord.  Large amounts of brush up to 3 inches in diameter should be kept long and placed adjacent to the street with the butt ends facing one direction for chipping.

A yard waste drop off site is available at the Tullar Road Garage at 1495 Tullar Road.

Fall Leaf Collection

Leaf collection begins the week of October 11 in Area #1 and continues until weather prohibits (snow or ice) or until the last scheduled collection, whichever comes first.  Place leaves loose on the terrace for pickup.  See page 6 of the Recycling and Refuse Guide for pickup dates in your area.  The schedule is subject to delay due to weather conditions.  If weather permits, there will be an additional non-scheduled pass through the City.  If weather prevents the City from completing the leaf collection, residents are responsible for disposal.

No plastic bags or containers of leaves will be collected.  To avoid polluting storm sewers and to prevent traffic hazards, do not rake leaves or grass into the street.

Grass Clippings

The city will not collect grass clippings. For a fee, you may dispose of grass clippings at the Winnebago County Landfill (920-232-1800), 100 W. County Road Y, Oshkosh. Biodegradable 30 gallon paper bags may be left at the landfill. All other bags must be removed. Landfill hours: Mon.- Fri. 7:00 a.m.-3:00 p.m., Sat. 7:00 a.m.-12:00 Noon. Any material brought to the landfill in an open trailer or truck must be covered with a tarp.
