Residents are encouraged to mow and mulch their leaves into their lawn. Mulched leaf litter is a good addition to a healthy lawn. For those who wish not to mow their leaves - The City of Fort Atkinson’s leaf pick up is scheduled from October 25 – November 22, 2017.   Leaf pick up will start on October 25th, in the NE quadrant of the City and work in a counter clockwise rotation of the City.  The crews will make as many rounds of the City as time allows until the end of the pick-up on November 22nd.

Residents must keep their leaves on the terrace (between the sidewalk and curb) to avoid storm water impacts on water quality. Brush and limbs should be kept separate from the leaves.  

During the leaf pick up period (October 25-November 22, 2017), the drop off area at the Department of Public Works (700 James Place) will not be available to the public.  Beginning October 25th, the City’s compost site will be open from Monday – Friday 8:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. for leaf and brush drop off only. Appliances and electronic recycling is only available on Wednesday afternoons 3:00 p.m. to sunset and Saturdays 9:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m.

Check the City Facebook Page for weekly progress updates or call the City Garage at 563-7771.
