The City of Milwaukee Department of Public Works thanks all Milwaukeeans for their help in cleaning up after each of December’s fresh snowfalls. This is a reminder for residents and property owners on what they need to know and make part of their clean-up:
•Please clear a path to garbage and recycling carts so DPW crews can service them with few snow and ice obstructions. This helps DPW crews do their job efficiently, effectively and safely and ensures a timely pick-up
•Shovel sidewalks within 24 hours after the snow stops falling
•Shovel around fire hydrants on your block
•Do not shovel or blow snow from sidewalks and driveways back into plowed streets
•Look up your next garbage and recycling collection dates at www.milwaukee.gov/mpw, and again, shovel the area around your carts before scheduled collections. You can call 286-CITY (2489) to get your pick-up information as well.
DPW Sanitation crews will be working this Saturday, December 28 collecting both garbage and recycling. Be sure to clear a path for our crews – the Department of Public Works appreciates your assistance!
