Year-Round Garbage Cart Set-Out Program in Effect in the City of Milwaukee
Residents with curb pick-up must take their garbage cart to the curb on their designated collection day.
The City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works (DPW) reminds City residents that the year-round
garbage cart set-out program is in effect.
This means that residents with curb pick-up must take their garbage cart to the curb on their designated
collection day. Ideally, carts should be placed between the sidewalk and the curb. When snow mounds
prevent this, carts can be placed on the sidewalk next to the driveway approach. Or, if the cart does not
obstruct motor vehicle traffic lanes, place it in the street at the curb near the driveway. Carts must be
returned to the storage location by 10:00 p.m. on the day garbage is collected.
to the cart so DPW crews can access it to collect garbage.
Most snowfalls should not impact garbage collection days. Residents should continue to place their carts
out on their scheduled collection days. Note that garbage collection will be pushed back one day after
Monday, January 19, 2015 for the Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. holiday.
For information on your collection day(s) and to sign up to receive an alert from DPW when inclement
weather impacts garbage collection, go to www.city.milwaukee.gov/mpw or call (414) 286-CITY (-2489).
