Leaf & Yard Waste Collection

Collection Guidelines

Yard waste is collected, each year, in the spring and fall.  Yard waste is defined as leaves, grass clippings, and yard and garden debris. Yard waste must be bagged in 30 gallon or smaller biodegradable, clear or transparent bags only. Yard waste will not be collected if not properly bagged or placed in non-transparent or black bags. The City offers Bio-Bags in the fall only at the Finance Department.

Residents may use the compost site to dispose of leaf and yard waste. The compost site is open on Saturdays from 8:00 a.m. – 2:00 p.m. and Wednesdays 3:00 p.m. – 7:00 p.m. The City will provide a loader for loading chips and compost on the first Saturday of each month until the site closes for the season.

Residents requesting brush collection should call 262-473-0560 to make an appointment for pick up on Tuesdays.

NOTICE:  City Ordinance Chapter 12.08 – Street Obstructions, Section: 12.08.010 – Residents are prohibited from depositing any yard waste debris on city streets or right of ways other than City of Whitewater designated days.
