Keep yard waste off of streets

Fall leave pick-up in Sturgeon Bay will be here soon. Maples and other early changers are already starting to ignite color season. Peak is expected in early October and then the leaves come tumbling down. Sturgeon Bay Municipal Services Director Mike Barker wants to remind residents to avoid parking on the street in front of leaf piles. This makes it difficult for city employees to complete the pick-up. Last year, city employees would rake the leaves around parked vehicles but they will not be doing that in 2019. Residents are also expected to keep leaf piles off of the street. 

 


Ditto for grass clippings. Yard waste winds up in catch basins in the storm drains and has to be fished out. City ordinance defines yard waste as litter and pushing it out into the street can result in fines.
