Sturgeon Bay tweaks service

Friday marks the second month that Sturgeon Bay residents are able to get rid of their brush this year with the April through October service. This year the city moved away from a one time brush collection which was previously held during Spring. The brush collection will be continuing to run, along with the city’s large item collection, on the second Friday of each month. The other change that Sturgeon Bay Municipal Services Director Mike Barker notes is that people will have to pay a bit more for getting rid of brush and large items this year. Barker says the city isn’t increasing these prices to make a profit.  



The service is designed to allow residents chances to have brush, branches, and garden waste collected throughout the year. Barker says the services are helpful for those who may have a smaller vehicle or don’t have other means for disposing at the city’s compost site. Due to large items and brush items being taken to different facilities for disposal, residents will have to pay a separate $35 fee for each service if they choose to take part. The city will be unable to pick up leaves with the service, as those will be picked up during the fall leaf collection. Barker estimates that approximately 35-40 homes in Sturgeon Bay participate in the service which takes approximately half a day to complete. Information to sign up for the program can be found here.
