City Drop-Off Yard
A Sticker Permit is required to enter the City Drop-Off Yard. See below for more details.
Materials accepted at the City Drop-Off Yard include:
Extra refuse and recyclables
*Effective January 1, 1993, organic materials are banned from landfills by the State of Wisconsin.
We consider brush as any type of woody material that could be ground into wood mulch. Brush inlcudes limbs, branches, sticks, twigs, and some types of shrub trimmings. Trimmings that are comprised mostly of leafy material would be considered as "organics" rather than brush and should be separted when brought to the City Drop-Off Yard.
We use the term "organics" to describe dead plant materials other than brush. Organics would include dead bedding plant and tree leaves, grass clippings, hedge trimmings, vegetable plant residues and fruits, pumpkins, and lawn rakings.
Residents are encouraged to mow grass before it’s 4 inches high and mulch clippings on your lawn or use the grass clippings for compost or mulch. However, if necessary, bagged clippings can be brought to the City Drop-Off Yard. DO NOT blow or rake grass clippings into the street.
During the spring or summer, leaves can be used for compost or mulch; bagged leaves can be dropped off at the City Drop-Off Yard. Leaves are only picked up by the Public Works Department in the fall. Watch for news releases regarding the start and completion of leaf collection.
