Department of Public Works Fall News

Sept. 22, 2010

New Drop-Off Center Hours – The Cudahy drop-off center will be open for residential waste drop off three days a week. During those hours recycling, garbage and yard waste may be dropped off. The new fall hours which begin October 1, 2010 are:

Tuesday & Thursday 11:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.

Saturday 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m.

Roofing Material No Longer Accepted at the City Drop-Off Site –The City no longer accepts roofing material. When replacing a roof or portions of a roof, it is best to get a dumpster. The City requires a written permission for all dumpsters that will be placed in City right of way. This can be done over the phone by calling the Department of Public Works at (414) 769-2216.

Items Containing Refrigerants – The City no longer pick-ups or accepts items containing refrigerants such as dehumidifiers, air conditioners and refrigerators. You can contact the City’s Department of Public Works at (414) 769-2216 for companies that will pick these items up.

Electronic Waste - On September 1, 2010 the State of Wisconsin has prohibited the disposal of electronic waste with the usual garbage. Electronic waste includes items such as computers, radios, televisions, cell phones and similar equipment. By law these items need to be recycled. In order to meet these new regulations the City has set up bins at the City’s drop off site. City of Cudahy residents can drop off electronic items at the designated bins during hours when the drop off site is open. Another alternative is to drop electronic items off at any Good Will center.

Leaf Collection--Beginning in October leaves will be swept on a scheduled basis using two vacuum units working each weekday from 5:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. You may rake your leaves into the curb into piles no higher than the curb. Leaf collection will end on December 3rd or the first measurable snowfall.

Fall Yard Waste Collection--During the week of November 1-5, the Department of Public Works will pick up yard waste including garden debris, leaves and grass. Plant materials and garden waste can be placed in the curb line for this week only. This does NOT include trees, branches, or brush. Crews will follow the regular sweeping schedule of one day in each district.

Holiday Garbage Pickup --For the weeks of Thanksgiving, residents who normally have garbage collection on Monday, Tuesday or Wednesday will have their garbage picked up on the regular day. Thursday pick-up will be on Wednesday (the day before the holiday). The week of December 27th the Monday collection will be on Tuesday, the Tuesday collection will be on Wednesday, and the Wednesday and Thursday collections will be on Thursday. The week of January 3, 2011 all collections will be one day late.

Holiday Tree Disposal-- The Cudahy DPW will be collecting Christmas trees placed by the curb for a two-week period beginning Monday, January 10, 2011.

Sidewalk Snow Removal-- Our City codes make it the responsibility of the “owner, occupant or person in charge of any building or lot” to completely remove snow and ice from the abutting public sidewalk within 24 hours after the snow has stopped falling. If the sidewalks are not kept clear of snow and ice, the City, without further notice, will have a contractor do the work and bill the cost to the owner.
