October 1 - November 15
City of Milwaukee residents have until Wednesday, Nov. 15 to rake their leaves into the curb lanes for pick-up by the Department of Public Works (DPW). Leaves and brush, along with other yard waste, are banned from landfills and must not be placed in garbage
or recycling carts. DPW collects leaves, brush and yard waste separately from garbage and composts it,
which conserves natural resources while saving the City money.
Residents are also encouraged to mulch
leaves and leave grass clippings on the lawn. This saves time and money, and adds nutrients to the soil.
Official Trick or Treat hours in the City of Milwaukee will be held on Sunday, Oct. 29 from 1-4 pm.
Residents are reminded to keep children safe during Trick or Treat. Get safety tips from your police and fire departments and let's make Halloween safe and more enjoyable for everyone.
The City of Milwaukee Water Quality Task Force held regular meetings beginning in September 2016, investigating ways to remediate leaded drinking water lateral service lines and lead coming from various sources of internal plumbing. On April 28th the Task Force approved a final Report and Recommendations document on steps and methods to ensure the long-term health and safety of Milwaukee's drinking water, and that document is set for final Common Council review this month.
Milwaukee exists because of its location on the fresh coast of Lake Michigan. Now, Milwaukee is developing a global reputation for freshwater research and innovation. We are a Water-Centric City. Check out how Milwaukee is leading at WaterCentricCity.org.
