As the fall season quickly approaches, it is important to remember the leaf disposal programs offered by the Village of Shorewood.
Bagged Leaf & Yard Waste Collection Program
Beginning the first Tuesday in April through December 15th, residents may take advantage of the bagged collection program (no stickers required). Shorewood’s last pick-up date will be the Tuesday before December 15th. The bagging program, provided through Waste Management, allows residents to dispose of yard waste bags filled with leaves and other yard waste each week on their normal trash collection day.
Bulk Curbside Leaf Collection Program
Beginning the 2nd full week of October and ending December 1st, or the first snowfall, the bulk curbside leaf collection program provides residents with an alternative way to dispose of their leaves. Using specialized mechanical equipment, Village crews collect leaves from parkways. Crews start at 7:00 a.m. and work until 3:00 p.m. Leaf volume and weather uncertainties make it impossible for the village to guarantee curbside leaf collection on a specific day. To participate, rake leaves onto the parkway parallel to the street and approximately 12 inches behind the curb or edge of the pavement.
