Sturgeon Bay’s Municipal Services Department has announced it will begin leaf pickup on Monday. The city is broken up into regions with the goal being multiple passes through each area, says Director Mike Barker.
Sturgeon Bay is reminding residents to rake leaves to the curb but keep them out of the street. That helps the city avoid having to clean out clogged stormwater drains. Leaves should be left loose, rather than in bags, and there should be no yard waste or other garbage mixed into the piles. Department employees will inspect the stacks before loading it into the truck. The city is also asking residents to keep animal waste out of the leaf piles. Those materials can be dropped off at the compost site on Division Street at no charge.
